Data entry error Good to use. Pity that my first test search resulted in a glaring error in the name I was searching. It is correct in the web BDM index so it is a data entry error, not a transcription error. Searchers should be aware of this. Hope it is fixed .

Bryan Keniry

To all the whiners The reason you can't search more recent records is not because they don't have that information, it is because information privacy laws prevent this information from being publicly available. Deal with it!

Marie Scott

Will be better when it realises it is now 2014 and we should be able to search 1913 births! What do you whingers want for nothing? It's great

Paul O'Bree

A great app. I have installed this app today and rate it 10/10. I now have the ease of searching without having to go to the web site etc. I have a lot of family members from NSW.

Brilliant I'm doing family research and this is a brilliant app. You can then order certificates if you want them. Found my grandfather & was able to order his birth certificate. Wish all the other states had an app like this.
