We have now added a News page where we will keep you updated on everything that is happening on the site. Today we have added some new military records to our collection. Read about them here:

All I want them to do is fix the outstanding bugs and then take a break ... Lundy Island for instance.

Until GRU was taken over by BrightSolid it did not have any record collections. It was also a lot more fun.

Why they keep adding these incoherent bits and pieces, Ancestry-on-a-shoestring I have no idea. Parish records for instance is an out and out disaster yet many newbies join for this blissfully unaware of freereg and FamilySearch. There are all manner of gotchas on the census reocrds never fixed. Gertcha if you work down Shoreditch way.

The only bug fixes they announce are when they have not fixed a bug but say that they have - e.g. Estelle recently.

I only look at Announcements when something is flagged as new - which is not happening at the moment

Certainly do not read blogs
