Ancestry Fee
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 19:33 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm paying monthly subscription (13.99) at the minute and was thinking of upgrading to 6 monthly(£69.99) is it wise for me to cancel the monthly one first then re subscribe or just upgrade straight away before the 28 before my sub is taken out. If upgrade now will I have to pay anymore on top of the 69.99
Don't know what to for the best any help appreciated I'm new to this subscribing
Thanks

Hi

Welcome to RootsChat

Food for thought.

This link was still working recently - cheaper subscription for ancestry than your quote.

UK Premium £59-99  or Worldwide £89-99 for 12 months. 

Probably best you cancel your monthly one first and then re-subscribe.  It says new subscribers but you could get round this by creating a new email address.

You can drag your data back to your computer as a 'ged' file - commonly called a 'gedcom' file - and re-send it back to ancestry when you get sorted out....

I am a long-time ancestry subscriber and found a discounted subscription offer for membership. I waited for my membership to lapse and then renewed at the discounted rate despite not being a new member.

Perhaps "new" also covers "not currently subscribed"?

The link to the discount was via the DNA home page.
Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!
Vincent: Fressingfield, Suffolk, Stockton & Sunderland.
Murtha/Murtaugh: Dundalk & Sunderland
Ingram: Cairnie by Huntly, Scotland then Abergavenny
Bardouleau: London - in memory of my kind stepmother Annie Rose née Bardouleau who put up with a lot from me.

Me too - I resubscribed at the discounted rate within a few hours of the old sub lapsing.

I didn't think that a gedcom file saved things such as photos or other attached records? So if you did this, wouldn't you lose those from your tree and have to attach them all again?

Safer to let your membership lapse for a day or so and then resubscribe.
