Maybe its the £10 delivery? "...but hopefully Amazon will price match." Do Amazon even sell this, in order to be able to price match?

He may have been redacted anyway. My dad was born in 1937 but wasn't shown in the 1939 Register - maybe one of the lines on the page which has been censored out.

Sorry for my lack of help. I just took a minute to post the deal. I figured people would figure it out. Oh, you did. Well done.

jcrider

There is nothing thick or daft about it. I struggled to understand how to connect to the site, and left a message up for a few hours asking how... before finally working it out. A better explanation by the original poster would have been a little more helpful (although I do recognize and appreciate them posting the deal in the first place). This is the link: https://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=61596

Something in the a newspaper the other month compared the same persons DNA through a few different testing companies, the results varied quite widely, which made me lose interest in doing one of these tests. I know I'm at least 50% moron anyway.

aztech

It's DNA day apparently and other companies have also got offers on. 23andme has 30% off so £55 for ancestry service. Living DNA is £79.20 from £120. I don't know the subtleties between them.

badger1010

That is one of the downsides of this site, there are some participants who go out of their way to knock people's efforts to help others.

placebo2000

I think you can get this Ancestry test for just £59 on Amazon without have to pay the postage: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Testing-Ancestry-Test/dp/B00TRLVKW0/ I've had myself tested and it told me I was mostly Scots, Irish and Scandanvian. It has allowed me to confirm some lines on my family tree - some were correct, one looks like it might not be. I've bought a test for my parents to try and break down some of the brick walls in my tree (mostly where the father is unknown).

brendanhickey

I did the 23andme. I'm not an immigrant. Almost 100% British

Er, no. If you don't know anything about the subject matter, maybe refrain from commenting? It isn't a 'random company' but a well established one. You do know that adoptees and people with unknown parentage rely on autosomal testing to identify family.

Black Friday was when I was waiting for on this one. They may reduce prices around Christmas but I wouldn't guarantee it. I ended up getting 23andme.com's version for £59 delivered with the free shipping and Black Friday discount. Surely if you believe we're all descended from Adam, you can't also accept the worthiness of these tests? Amongst other things, this test includes measuring the prevalence of neanderthal genes. The bible's version of where man came from simply isn't compatible with the existence of neanderthals.

HJboss

This is interesting I would like to get this done. Any new deals? I do believe we are all children of Adam .

ericroseden

I Didn't notice £20 delivery until three days later when I checked PayPal. Am asking for a refund. The advert banner showed £75 crossed out and £49 as the cost. Dishonest advertising in my opinion.

Hi there thanks for the post. I have been doing my family tree on Ancestry for several years, intermittently subscribing but now mainly using the free weekends. Also use FreeBMD and Family Search. Find My Past when they do free weekends, You can usually get free access at libraries but more of a drag to do it that way. Probably 3-4 free weekends between Ancestry and Find my Past a year. I began with the 2 week Ancestry free trial (you do need to give credit card details but you can cancel before they start charging), use that time to start your tree and then either subscribe or wait for free weekends. Also you can download records which may be useful reference when the free trial ends.

Hi there. I did have an annual membership of Ancestry to build the family tree. I have then used free websites such as FreeBMD, Family Search and Find a Grave to add to it and also when Ancestry is free. Also i tried out FindmyPast as a free month trial. It is useful to use several sites as the searches are slightly different or they have some different archives e.g. Findmypast has details of 1939 pre war census and newspaper archives. The totally free websites probably provide less detail and searching can be more clunky but sometimes throw up details you don't expect, and they are free!!

saniman

Just phoned Ancestry....free access is working but only gives access to records and hints about records. Doesn't give access to hints about pubic ancestry member trees....which is where I was having the problem. Hope this helps...

gemniz

its a good offer. you really need to have a few months to dig into the records, especially if you haven't got much to go on to start with. I had a membership a couple of years ago for 6 months (back when you could buy a box with software and free 6 months membership). I've traced some ancestors reliably back to 1840 or so, some quite boring (farmers etc, not much to find there), but others have interesting stories. so I'd say its definitely worth it if you can put the time and effort in and you're interested.

andyhump

This is hilarious. 4 months premium access for 20 quid and it's freezing cold! Perhaps I should have posted the 14 quid a month offer! To get the offer you just have to complete the free 2 week trial. And as for the effectiveness of Ancestry.co.uk, I have got back to 1700 and I've only been doing it for a fortnight. And I have every document available as evidence. I've discovered 4 relatives who served in WW1, 3 of whom died at the front and even a relative who was transported to Oz. Just imagine how long that would have taken if I'd had to rely on traditional methods!

buzzard

Ancestry does not give you your tree but it allows you to see public trees and go far enough and someone else is likely to have researched some of your ancestors - so you get very useful hints. You will not get the same things from public records - a few times you'll get more but mostly a hell of a lot less unless you want to travel to different parts of the country and spend ten times as long and a lot more money.

Rich069

​Agree with this. Originally signed up thinking they would have all the info. Instead, it shows you ways to find the info yourselves. Basically, you do it all yourself, and can do it the same way without Ancestry from public files/records/google.

What's the TCB discount please?

mrglyn

I've used Ancestry for over 12 months and have bought two of the AncestryDNA kits for willing family members. Both of the tests identified many 'xth cousins' who turned out were definitely related to us and shared great grandfathers, etc. The ethnicity estimator is interesting but it's not worth getting the kit just for that. I'd recommend getting this only if you're already researching your family tree (or are planning on doing so) through Ancestry. Anyway, £69 including postage is cheaper than any other deal I've seen for it. The best I've seen in the last year or so was £79 (free postage). Plus TBC and Quidco do cashback on top of it.

greta

Entirely a different artticle about something else. These have never claimed to see if you're related to Richard III, etc. However, they will give accurate results if you want to find out 1st-4th cousins. A more accurate analysis is on the ISOGG website: http://isogg.org/wiki/Autosomal_DNA_statistics Scroll down to the percentages. I have located people's parents through this, they were adopted and had no idea of who their parents were. You cannot put a price on that. EDIT: if you have questions, go to the ISOGG Facebook group and ask questions https://www.facebook.com/groups/isogg/ A lot of very knowledgeable people there.

Currently taking advantage of the 4 months for £20 deal, which is proving very valuable, so I don't need this but if anyone is tempted please, for the love of god, quadruple check everything you put in your public trees, and octople check everything other people have done. There's very few trees I've found that aren't littered with errors, some blatent. Unless one of my ancestors did marry his own daughter and sire himself, in which case I'll take it back.
