If Ancestry are going to put their records for free over the New Year?

I usually get an email, but nothing yet.

I have not heard anything nor seen any advert on the TV which is unusual if it is going to happen. :-) No notice on Ancestry site either

Yes you are LG!!!!

I have just paid my subs to Genes, and lucky me.............I have 10% off!

Ancestry deals here........

Not checked any of them.


MotownGal Report 31 Dec 2017 13:55

Thank you Mr M. I did look. They sent me a similar email, but I was waiting for a freebee!

Sue has very kindly offered to help me, so will wait until I have my facts straight before contacting her.

You can always post a thread on the relative board. ;-)
Sometimes several heads are better than just one.

You are right DET. I have done in the past, and I think you have helped me too!

I do so love it when Ancestry does a freebee. There is nothing to beat the thrill of finding our something yourself.

Sadly, the rush of finding out info has lessened in the last couple of years, and I have hit A GREAT BIG BRICK WALL!!!!! Grrrrrr! Where do these people go? They disappear off the face of the earth, never to be seen again!

They don't phone! They don't write!

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D <

Thank you to Sue in Yorkshire, for her wonderful work. I am still wading through all the information you sent me.

Also thank you to Mr M. for his helpful hints. Still not hurdled the wall, but maybe will be like Chad peeping over it.

:-) <3

Hopefully you soon get a leg over. ;-) :-D :-D
