    NBI & Findmypast

    I am interested in these but am I right in thinking a subscription to their site is £54 for only 6 months?

    How much would it cost to buy the NBI on disc & where would I get them from?

    Thanks

      I'm not sure if it's worth buying the disc (which has very patchy coverage) when look-ups are so cheap on FHOL:

      This shows the databases it includes - the burials are mostly from the NBI.

        NBI info here
        FFHS - Projects - NBI overview
        Important to check coverage before you buy.
        Discs can be purchased from GENfair - cost about 40pounds.


        I paid something like 85 pounds for an annual Explorer package on Findmypast - I think it was a discount offer. FMP also give a 20% loyalty discount if you renew your subscription annually - so no having to phone and haggle for the best possible price!

        Some of the NBI information on FMP is not on the discs, and I think some of the info on the discs is not on FMP!

        FMP are gradually taking over the information on FamilyHistoryonline so I think in the future it will be a very useful resource. Well its a good resource now, but you know what I mean!!

          I recently bought 60 units on FMP which are valid for 90 days because I wanted to look at some things on NBI and a couple of other bits. It costs £6.95.

          At this stage there isn't enough on there that warrants me taking out a sub but I may consider it in the future.

            Thanks everyone !

            Jackie I couldn't see that on the link they sent me

            Does that give you access to all their databases do you know?

            If that's the case then it would be well worth £7 !! Does that include unlimited use/look ups?

              I think if you go on the home page and click on "Pay per view" on the right it tells you. You can then click on the "how many units will I be charged" bit. It depends how much you want to look up and what sort of records they are but its worth having a look at. It seems that you can access all the records but some cost more units than others.

              When I did it I reckoned that if I found a lot more than I had expected I could either buy more pay per view or a sub. If I read it correctly though, only the most expensive sub gives you unlimited access to all of their records.
