I've just paid for a 12 month subscription but don't quite know how this works because just searched ant it's taking 5 credits and now only have 30 credits? What does this mean? I thought it lasted 12 months? Cheers

It looks like you have taken the Standard member option

1). Standard.

This is available for 6 months or as an annual subscription.

If you choose a Standard subscription you will have the ability to contact other members from your search results, link up to view other members' trees when they invite you to do so and add messages to the message boards. The cost of the subscription does not include credits for our records section, although you do get free access to our non-indexed birth, marriage and death records. Credits for the rest of the records have to be purchased separately. You do not have to be subscribed to buy credits.

Before you spend any money their are plenty of free sites you can use for some records, If you go to the Genealogy Chat board and ask what free sites their are and the Find Ancestors board if you want to ask for a lookup on a specific family/record, be sure to give as much info as possible.
