Re: 1939 National Register

FindMyPast gives an RG101 reference: e.g. RG101  6303C-020-18 RJIF, which is piece, page and line number. I tend to use FMP instead of Ancestry for searching the 1939 register because of this.


A note on the birth dates given, however, as they are frequently wrong. Always cross check with the online GRO index. I have had several instances where the year is incorrect, and one or two with completely wrong dates.

I think you're being a little unfair - most providers have their own internal file reference structure for the data they provide and the TNA referencing system may not play nicely with that.

The quoted "tna_R_39" structure presumably reflects Ancestry's internal file referencing.
