Free UK Genealogy provides free, online access to family history records. We work with a team of dedicated volunteers to create high quality transcriptions of public records from governmental sources, parish churches, and other trusted institutions. We believe that Open Data and Open Source are key to making and keeping public records accessible to all.
On the FreeBMD project, our volunteers use dedicated software to transcribe the Indexes to Births, Marriages and Deaths in England and Wales into an electronic form. Most volunteers run this software on a PC but there are a number that use Macs. The Mac version (MacBMD-X) was written by a volunteer who is no longer able to support and enhance the software and therefore FreeUKGEN is looking for someone to take over this role. There may also be opportunity to develop further Mac versions of other tools, such as BMDVerify (used by volunteers to check their transcriptions).
