Pam When you say your account is ready for tomorrow, what do you mean? Should I be doing something in advance to ensure I can see the full BMD? Nikki

After reading some of the replies I thought I would check that my account is all set for tomorrow so phoned Ancestry and yes I'm all ready to go and so I asked this very nice guy is it true that the full BMD index is going on line tomorrow and his answer was YES , he also said that there would be lots of new things coming on line, so its seems there is lots to look forward to.

Hi Zoe Thanks for the update. So was this a PR from MyFamily Inc ? Cheers...P


Zoe Report 17 Jan 2006 11:40

Paula The original message contains the relevant text - the other bits of the press release are all contact details and who's in chareg of what stuff that I can't really post on a public forum Zoe


Paul Report 17 Jan 2006 11:28

Hi Has anyoine posted the actual press release on GR? Or is there a link to the actual text ? Cheers...P


Kate Report 17 Jan 2006 10:51

No way am I doing that because if it is available at midnight I would find myself staying up all night searching it!! But anyway, we don't really know if it will be going up at midnight, do we? Kate.


Zoe Report 17 Jan 2006 10:43

okay - who's going to volunteer to stay up until midnight and let us all know what the new index is all about? I can't I'm afraid as I have to get up for work at 5.30 - so I'll do the 7.45am check when I get into work if theres no news before then Z xx


Kaz Report 16 Jan 2006 22:31

Have been following the thread, unsure whether to upgrade or not. I renewed my membership at the end of last November. But I have just gone and done it, the refund is 52.45. Hope now that it will be worth it!! Karen

I'd wait and see Alan. They may offer you a discount if you renew.


Andrew Report 16 Jan 2006 20:42

Damm... I just brought units last night as well,been waiting a while for ancestry to do this


Alan Report 16 Jan 2006 20:42

I am subscribed to the 'Annual UK & Ireland Records Collection' which is due to expire on the 22nd of January, what is the best option for me then. Should I wait and see what they say in the e-mail or should I upgrade now to the 'Annual UK Deluxe Membership' one now ??

From a message earlier in this thread, no-one will need to upgrade their subscriptions on Ancestry (unless it's one of the very early ones that was replaced last year, in which case I'd email them to check) I will not be changin my subscription until it is due for renewal, and even then it will be under duress. I am subscribed through the US site as, with the exchange rate, it worked out cheaper. When I'm due for renewal, they'll probably want to charge me $300 for the priviledge. I don't think so! lol
