SmartSearch™ allows you to automatically search for:
the partner from a marriage record
the complete family at the same address as the person whose census record you are viewing
a birth record from a death record (only works for men, or for women who still use their maiden name)
You can produce surname-distribution maps based on the data in the birth, marriage and death records index for England & Wales 1837 to 2005.
You will need to be registered and to have bought some credits to use this feature.
Maps cost just 10 credits each.
To produce a surname-distribution map, search for a surname using the Master Search or Births, Marriages and Deaths search tools, entering the year range you are interested in.
If using the Master Search tool, click on Births & Baptisms, Deaths & Burials or Marriages under Filter by Event, and then on 'View a map of results' to view distribution maps which are generated from the birth, marriage and death records index for England and Wales.
