I don't know whether forum users are aware of a new site set up by Bill Lawson - it may prove useful to those searching family from the Western Isles/Hebrides.

I had an EMail about this today, the site uses a voucher system like Scotland's People but not been able to work out if you can do an initial search without a voucher.  I tried entering a range of surnames and none produce any results and no message to say you need to pay before you see anything.  I would have expected the normal method of giving some minimal results to encourage you to pay to get full details so I am puzzled!

BRISCOE - Bolton, Heaton Norris, Rochdale, Oldham, Chadderton, Blackburn
POUNDER - Middleton Tyas, Kirkbymoorside, Stokesley, Lambeth, Bolton, Newcastle on Tyne, Leeds
HAMMOND - Quebec, Laverton, Masham, Grantley

O'Shea - Quebec
PARRY - Caerhun, Deiniolen, ClwtyBont, Brynrefail, TalySarn, Brynrefail, Bethesda
EVANS - Llanfihangel Bryn Pabuan, Maesmynis, Dowlais, Stockton on Tees, Hartlepool, Trealaw
HARVEY - Trentham, Sheriffhales, Llanfyllin, Llanferres, Minera

Just found this old thread.

You have to buy credits before you can view anything!

I couldn't remember what it said exactly when it became available so I did a search with a very common surname & this was the result;

"Credits Required
Found 5 results.

User xxxxxx has 0 credits left. Purchase more credits.

You will need to use 1 credit to view this item but you do not have enough credits left.
In order to proceed you will need to purchase more credits.
"

So, no 'try before you buy'  :-\
