Could anyone please tell me the cost of standard membership plus the 50 credits annually X

If you have had no break you should be paying the same as last year.

We all pay differing amounts depending on when we joined and/or had a break.

Click on UPGRADE on the very top line.

It will give you the costs for Platinum and Standard memberships, which are the only two now offered.

I'm like nameslessone in that I've been a member for a very long time, never changed from Standard and never taken a break. I pay a low sub that hasn't changed for years, but equally I haven't had the 50 credits for years .......... however that doesn't bother me as I can find everything offered on GR either for free, cheaper or easier on other sites. That is being honest with you!

I've been a Standard member since March 2003.

I've always been on Standard and, as far as I can remember, never taken a break .
In March 2020, renewal cost me £17.96.

I do get the 50 free credits per year - though my credit history gives weird figures. For instance, it says I've bought 4370 credits this year, which is complete rubbish, as I've never bought any credits over and above the 50 included in membership.

Like most, if not all, of the helpers on the boards, I never use GR for searching records, for the same reasons Sylvia gives.
I use GR for the community boards , and (combined with Ancestry) for ER searches. I also have my tree on GR - as well as elsewhere.

I see that Kira112 is also a long-term member - Dec 2004.
