First impressions are, I don't like the search options, not enough boxes for info input.

Mike, its worth scrolling down past the Master Search to the specific data sets as these give you more search options.  I'd also recommend watching the tutorial videos via the Help tab.

Once you master it the search is pretty powerful, although find their transcriptions to be poor.

Its worth being aware that The Genealogist Gold Subscription is somewhat limited in what records are available.  The majority of their so-called premium records, such as many of the parish register transcripts along with the Tithe Maps, are only available with the Diamond Subscription which is somewhat more expensive.

I tend to agree that their search engine isn't particularly good, I've been in the past a subscriber for a number of years until the records that were of interest appeared on the other commercial websites and it wasn't worth subscribing to any longer.

Hi,
You can get a similar offer, but only for 3 months by purchasing "Computer Active" issue 522, 28th Feb 2018. "Computer Active" costs 2.10p.
Probably other offers out there too.
