Thanks for posting. 🔥
Why would you need a membership on this? Once you get your genealogy what's next?

You get access to all records including USA I think so searching and linking is easy and you can view the actual records
Great deal, unfortunately just for new customers.
NOT TRUE . I'VE JUST RENEWED MY MEMBERSHIP
39509722-jDHOU.jpgDidn't let me renew.
Good price if you can get it.
If doing this to investigate DNA matches get the worldwide version as however British you are some of your relatives with have headed to the colonies.

This is for UK premium. If you want global records it's £89.99 I think. Which is still a good price.
Surely these databases are national records and free to access

This is not the AncestryDNA kit offer

This is purely membership to access UK records only in searching the online records for family history
eg UK Census 1841 - 1911 + UK BMD
For info
Via my account - when logged into ancestry.com the renewal price (for all access not just UK) the renewal price is £179.99

SubscriptionsWorldwide membership
DETAILS Started: December 27, 2018
Ends on: December 27, 2019 (and yes it ends today....already cancelled auto renewal (see last line) because of the £179.99)
Billing Cycle: Annual
Renewal Price: £179.99/year
This subscription has been canceled and will not renew. You will continue to have access until December 27, 2019.

But when logged in ancestry.co.uk the renewal price is only £89.99

No I don't understand it - different prices depending on which site you log in to but I guess there's other "global" companies that also offer different prices just the same.

CORRECTION

I guess this price is for new subs
When I tried to accept the UK offer £89.99 it took me to a new page that offered £99.99 for 6 months pfffft

No

only the 1881 UK census is free
others maybe free in some libraries (don't quote me) and potentially your local archives/records office (can't remember the correct name)
but AFAIK the 1911 census has always been a paid for service
yet BMD's from 1837 upto around 1976 (I think) are freely searchable at freebmd.org.uk/
and other records free at familysearch.org/sea…ch/

If it's higher price than that offered here I suggest contacting ancestry to negotiate

Pretty sure its free under the freedom of Information act takes some work but then these sites don't do it for you anyways

Doubt you honestly know what you are talking about but you go ahead and try.
The reason/benefit for ancestry.com (or it's country specific sites) is it's all under one roof and you can link the relevant records to your family member at the same time you'll find other family members who will be added if you click the relevant record.
Plus there's a vast amount of members who share and help together with the option of contacting others who's already searched/compiled their tree and ancestry (through it's system) has identified there's a link.

Since we were invaded by the Vikings, then the Romans, then the Normans together with the fact we were once an empire whereby we settled (or whatever term you wish to use) in many, many far off shores I doubt anyone only has DNA from just the UK

Just to reiterate - there's a difference between ancestry subscription/membership and ancestryDNA

I'd recommend (cheaper option) of starting off with UK only version subscription - then once you are happy with how things work and you've identified relatives abroad - only then decide if you need full access.

I used GenoPro for years and spent a vast amount of time & money researching one side of my tree including using the aforementioned FreeBMD and FamilySearch and it's 10 times harder than using ancestry.com

but each to their own.

Was it worth it. Did you find out that you from Africa as per all humans that's for free
Apparently this is an intelligence gathering ploy by the Chinese/Russians/Israelis (please delete as necessary)
fantastic, was just about to renew for a month at £15.99 so this is great.

An ancestry sub will not take you back as far as the Romans and is unlikely to take you as far back as the Romans. Within the period that it does cover it is possible to have British ancestry.

However most people will find that DNA matches largely come from America with a good few Canadians and Americans - because these are the people who most often take DNA tests. So you'll very soon find that a uk only sub is annoying if you are seriously interested in geneology. I'm not - my wife is.

Anyone who lets their sub lapse counts as a new member for this.

Taken from the offer page... *Offer available for new subscribers only and not for renewal of current subscriptions. After the initial 12 months, your membership will automatically renew at our standard prices for your chosen membership.

No harm in haggling with their customer services though

You'd need a genealogist to do that, using tools like ancestry. Just like you’d need a builder to build a house, using tools like hammers and drills. Ancestry is just one of many tools that can be used to understand your family tree, but it does take a lot of work. FoI requests won't work - Ancestry isn't a public body, and many of the records aren't 'public' anyway.

Heat added op – this is an excellent deal, and the Ancestry.co.uk resource is superb value for money at this rate.

And of course they need to fund digitisation of new records and upkeep of current databases, plus all the new finding tools they gave us this past year. Ancestry is the best family research tool I have, and I'm a genealogy teacher. Congrats on discounted membership, it's a crackin rate if you can access it. Heat from me.
It's very expensive just to find out it's the milkman 😳

I logged into my account and the offer was the first thing I saw 39514279-Hids0.jpg
Us too. We were members about 7 years ago. Trees were still on my account and, as above, when we logged in the offer was there. £59.99 for a year for an existing, if lapsed, member is excellent. Thanks
