Incorrect death certificates

Hi everyone.
I have recently bought some death certificates which have turned out to be incorrect. I don't want to throw them away as they may be useful to someone. Is there a website or database that I could log these certificates on? If not, wouldn't it be good if there were one?
Any ideas?
Jill

There are sites on which the certificates can be shared. You don't say where in the world the deaths occurred, so I'm not sure which sites would work for you.

You can also post details of the certificates on the relevant surname boards and attach an image of the certificates to those posts.

What about needed copies that people post for sharing? is that done anywhere?
Many thanks

You can exchange the certificates via the sites I mentioned. If you belong to a family history society (always recommended) it's likely you'll be able to share certificates through the society.

Dear Jill & 'All',

Whilst unknown to many, FreeBMD offers free and most appropriate location to post details from UNWANTED Certificates.

The 'postem' that you lodge will be made available to ALL who search the database, and is flagged with a small yellow 'Envelope' to indicate your extra data details. So someone searching for your 'William Snodgrass' will likely find your dispatch! EASY!


A Postem is an unrestricted note (250 chars max) that can be added to ANY BMD entry on FreeBMD. Add your relatives, your (certificate) failures, your interests etc.

Postems are a generic repository of ANY info relating to a BMD entry, and remain one of the best kept secrets (sadly) of this most useful of sites.

Search the current listings at:- (enter a date range, and say a surname of interest...)
http://www2.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/ShowPostems.pl

Best Wishes,

bworth
