All we appear to have access to is the BMD index. In searching for my gt-gt-grandmother Ellen Davis who was born cal. 1 October 1837, quite a number of women by that name show up. However, not knowing where she was born and the index not showing the name of the father it is impossible to determine which Ellen is the correct individual. I do not wish to order all of the records to find the correct one. Is there any other means of finding births with the father's name included?
