    I gave in too but although I paid £5 .50 (not £6) ? this afternoon about 3.15. I still haven't received an email from them so I cannot get to the videos so am a bit miffed to say the least. The money went out of my bank account straight away. I am interested in The Genealogist because of the tithe maps and non cons like Caroline. I have quite a few of those I cannot find online. I had a free trial awhile ago so cannot do that again.
    I have emailed FH so awaiting their reply.

      Would be interested to hear their reply. I joined at 14:25 and the cost was £6 as it was “on the day” rather than in advance. My email acceptance was instant but it took me a wee while to complete the request for the free 6 months magazine sub. I had totally forgotten that I once had a free trial many years ago and my email was already on their system. I had no idea what my password was so had to get it reset, then everything worked fine. You then have to “start” the sub which I haven’t done yet.
      I do remember when I had the trial, that I found the interface very clunky and it was hard to refine results so that you were not overwhelmed with poor matches. I hope it has improved a lot since then.

        Did I miss something? Are you talking about a free trial for TheGenealogist? I didn’t see that being offered.
        Main research interests.. CAESAR (Surrey and London), GOODALL (London), SKITTERALL, WOODWARD (Middlesex and London), BARBER (Canterbury, Kent) and CHEESEMAN (Kent).

          No. They are offering a reduced subscription to The Genealogist (not a free trial) at the show. I had a free trial with them a few years ago. I mentioned that because as you probably know if you have a free trial with any company you can only do that once.
          Buy a Diamond Annual subscription for a discounted price of £109.95 and get a Bookazine, Online Magazine Subscription and more!

              Thanks for that Caroline. Ipswich has 12 parishes they have only records for 1 - St Nicholas and they don't have Baylham or Rushmere st Andrew only Rushmere further north. Bubbles I really need those. Will have to wait for Suffolk Record Office to put theirs online. A long wait though methinks. I do have some discs from SFHS and they are gradually bringing out some 1650 - 1753 baps this year. Not cheap but cheaper than travelling from here to the RO

                Thanks Caroline. Lots of interesting looking stuff but the particular parishes I want in my counties are not there. Ones that are “might be’s” are too early for me as I’m not that far back in a lot of places. I think I’ll pass on the sub offer as I have so much else to do over the coming months.
                The tithe maps would be good but they can wait.

                  I was told at the time of purchase that the ticket was £6 and it completed as such. Out of curiosity, I have just checked the pending transactions on my account. I’m only paying £5.50.
