Caerphilly County Borough Council is creating two new employment opportunities to work on an innovative project.
The project to digitise the index of over 600,000 records will back-capture the information from over 175 years of birth, death and marriage records in the County Borough of Caerphilly up to the middle of the 1990s.
Cllr. David Poole, Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure Services said, "This new system will help to bring history into the present and enable our registration services to provide an enhanced service."
Cllr. Christine Forehead, Cabinet Member for HR & Governance welcomed the creation of two new roles, "At the council we are committed to providing employment opportunities. These posts will enable the successful applicants to learn new skills using up to the minute software."
The indexing will allow a much more effective and efficient search process for registration staff but more importantly a better service for the public as searches will become much more efficient.
The new full time posts will be responsible for the transfer of the required data from the legal register to the electronic index.
