      They are except that Origins stops in 1899 for births and marriages and in
      1924 for deaths whereas the computer search facility in New Register House
      for personal callers runs up to 18/24 months ago.

      > > Nicholas Moir is right in what he says about just getting a name which
      could be a common name with many possible candidates. But if it could be
      narrowed down to a likely Registration & Entry Number, it might then be
      possible to take that to the Registrar in Peterhead (King Street) and get a
      look at the certificate....or, in John's case, have someone who might be in
      Peterhead sometime to check it out for him with the Registrar. However, the
      problem is that John is dealing with an approximate timeframe of the
      1970s....too late for NRH.
