    Not sure about that.

    I think the ancestry website is free but you cannot view any documents unless you pay a monthly subscription. They do have free periods every now and then where you get full access without paying.

    Yes, the two websites were linked and run by the same people.

    I thought so.

    I bookmarked some of the pages that I had found, and I was thinking of putting the links on emails to relatives, but then I realised that they would have to join up themselves in order to see them.

    All the same, despite having to pay to use the service, I do think that it is worth it.

    I was referring to Find My Past rather than Ancestry with regards to the previous post, by the way...

    Just had a great email response from the Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock - although they recommended things that I have already done such as join Find My Past and Ancestry, they mostly referred to parish records and all that. I may contact the Nottingham Central Library as well with the same correspondence.

    I do know that my great-great-great-grandmother only seemed to be 14 when she married my great-great-great grandfather in 1820, and that is why I might have made a mistake - was the legal age as low as that back then? - especially if one needed to have parental permission if one was under the age of 21?

    A bit of an update for you - I have just looked at my latest credit card statement and I can precisely give you the details:

    Find My Past - 12.95

    Ancestry.co.uk - 58.20 (although that is for 12 months I believe).
