Just signed up for this. Have been Genes Standard Member for about 11 or 12 years so quite a major step. But a very good offer at moment.

In my welcome letter, it says "Don't be shy. Post a letter......."

I was offered too . Been here since before it was Genes. Lol

Standard membership though suits me as I have subs to Ancestry and FMP

Ancestry I like as both sides of my family came from various areas in the London and South East .

You have me now too for another 12 months as mine was renewed today

Not that it would make much difference to me.....but once you upgrade you can not go back to your cheap sub of £7.96 a year or less standard membership

Jax
That what I thought too I prefer to stay on my standard membership @ £7.96

Why pay more is my philosophy :-(

Just my decision to upgrade - which I have now done, jax. Yes, that was offer in my email - GRJUNE20 was code.

I was amused by "Don't be shy. Write....." Don't think I have ever been one of the shyest members :-D :-D ;-)
