Lost Cousins info about Find My Past

This might be old news to you, but I recently read this on Lost Cousins Site.

Stop Press

Just after this newsletter went to press I made a great discovery - it's now possible to buy a Worldwide subscription to findmypast through their British site!

You might think that's no big deal - after all, worldwide subscriptions have been on sale through findmypast's overseas sites for some time. But the Search at the overseas sites is very, very different from what existing UK subscribers are used to - in fact it's closer to what you'll find at the new FamilySearch site. So for me it's a great relief that it's now possible to buy a Worldwide subscription and continue to use the existing Search for British records.

Findmypast are offering an Introductory Discount on the price of a Worldwide subscription - you can save £20 on a 12 month subscription or £10 on a 6 month subscription (remember that 12 month subscriptions are always much better value). You don't need a discount code, but you can help to support LostCousins by following this link to the findmypast site.
Has anyone taken up this offer on FMP? If so, what do you think of it, and how does it compare to Ancestry World Wide subs?
