It says it's for new subscribers, but if you have an existing account but have let your subscription lapse, it also works
Doesn't work if your subscription is current.

Do not click on the text of the link below, copy the text (NOT 'Copy link'), and paste it into your browser and it does take you to the offer screen
ancestry.co.uk/cs/…rty
The problem when you put a web address into HUKD is that it changes it to have it starting as http:\\Hotukdeals...............with the link address as a sub link in it.
Ancestry cannot read this and goes to the default subscription or index screen.
So if you use 'copy link' or just click the link or click on the 'get deal' button, it will NOT take you to the offer.
Please do not vote cold because HUKD itself has linking problems and you have not fully followed instructions.

Thank you so much.



​where is the deal your link does not work

This worked with the copy and paste link you put up earlier Trevor.

Yes, same for me, link does not work, or expired.

CORRECTED:
See the instructions in the post

Trevor. The new link takes me to
'England & Wales Birth Marriage and Death Indexes 1837-2005'

perfect timing.... worked a treat. I unsubscribed at the end of December in anticipation of some sort of offer coming up and here it is, heat added

I have just copied/pasted the text of link into a browser on a different PC from the one I have created my new account on (ie. a non-Ancestry subscriber)

Great deal which works perfectly when the link is pasted, not clicked, as instructed.

Tried via Quidco too - hopefully it'll track?

Question - Is Ancestry a good site for a newbie to start researching family tree?

check whether your local library has a subscription - free access on-site if so.

Beware of the auto renew (I got caught ) no part subs refund - if you cancel your subscription you will still get access until your subscription renew date but it won't renew

OP sorry meant to say Great deal

The trick is to stop the auto-renew, it STILL allows you to access the Ancestry tree you have built, but not add to it.
Then, when a good deal (like this one), comes up, just subscribe for another year.

I do this every year and have saved a fortune :-)

In short.
YES

As long as you can start up with your own tree back to the 1901, you can then use all the census and other materials to build further back

If anyone is still having difficulty accessing this offer, the way I did it was to copy and paste the link into my seldom used Chrome browser which didn't have me logged into my ancestry account. Logged in using my existing ancestry details and paid the discounted subs and then logged in using my normal internet explorer browser. It might be that you can simply logout from ancestry before you copy and paste the link into your normal browser. Thanks again OP, wish I could vote HOT again

One other point. I use separate family tree software to build my family trees and use ancestry just for research. I'm not then restricted to building the tree whilst having to be subscribed to ancestry. The downside to this approach is you don't get matches with other family trees on ancestry

Thanks for reply. I have during a free weekend on findmypast made a start, which got me back to early 1900s, but ran out of time. Ended up trying to use other web based resources to try and go further back, but piecing it together was more guess work than anything else.

Many thanks!

Mine expired last year and I was waiting for the right deal. Saw one before Christmas and glad I held out. Half price is good so went for worldwide.

Can't understand why people mark these deals as cold, when it is a good deal. Yes, you can get it free at the library, but unless you are looking for just a small piece of information about one person, the time allowed (think half an hour or an hour in some libraries) doesn't mean you will find what you are looking for.

Just a point about your Family Tree when you have a lapsed membership. You can still add to it from other sources, such as Family Search, but remember to add the source so that you can find it again.

Can recommend the Course as I did it last year.

thank you

Thanks very much OP. I cannot understand why this has not attracted more heat. Ancestry is one the best sites for researching your family tree. Have some well deserved heat from me. Thanks again :D.

It works a treat. Got my renewal for £60 instead of £120. So a great web site. Well done and thankyou.This is dated 10th Feb 2017

Is Ancestry.co.uk any good? Answer - yes. So is Findmypast. Together the best way to do it. Many free sites give lots of detail (e.g. FamilySearch) but to do it seriously, viewing original images rather than transcriptions is better. Gives more information. Local libraries will have the documents for their own areas, so looking for relatives from other areas is difficult. However - many libraries have free access to websites where you can download as much info as you want. I know for certain Manchester, Birmingham and Cheshire East give access to Ancestry

glad i checked here saved me a few quid thanks so much

Why is this expired? It still appears to be working.
