Hello All My mother was taken into care by the local authorities in 1922 and was placed under the care of the Guardians. I am told her wellbeing and her whereabouts at the time can't be released until 100 years have gone by. My question is when did 100 year rule start, was it when she was taken into care or was it when she was released by the Guardians (Coventry Union)

I'm not sure about this one. I thought the 100 year rule applied only to publication and open access. I feel sure it doesn't apply to enquiries of close relatives. I was in the History Centre last Thursday and by asking for more info on my mothers birth in 1904 was shown a CD containing listings of births for the Coventry Union Workhouse. It shows births right through until 1930. In most cases it gives the mother's name and home address and whether the child was legitimate or illegitimate. In my family research there was no a problem of getting the death certificate for my mother's first husband dated 1979, nor for the birth of my step-sister in the 1930s.

To clear up my own query the following will help other members when researching family ancestors . The following applies : Individuals records remain closed for 100 years from the date of birth. The records will remain closed for people less than 100 years until proof of death is verified. I hope everyone agrees to my extrapolation of the "100 Year Rule"
