Sadly, it isn't obvious that the BMD Announcements show up in the indexing as a rule - or not under "Births" + "Announcements", anyway. You'll probably find Obituaries and might find Death Notices, but the others don't come up readily on searches I've tried so far. :(

In addition, it's very clear that the copyright on text displayed is held by the specific newspapers, so we can pass on the info &/or where to find it - but not a straight copy of the text.
