5 credits for normal bmd and census transcripts of an entry.   Some other records cost 10, 15, and a few cost 20 credits.

So it's ten basic searches and a look at the transcripts.  Not bad.  Roughly £6 worth of research.

Thanks Nick.   :D :D 8)

Thanks Nick, every freebie helps!

ladybird - they are valid for 90 days (its the code that expires sooner) so no hurry to use them.

I'd found this from another source and signed up. I haven't used FindMyPast for quite a while, there hadn't been any records I was interested in that I couldn't get from another source. However, I thought I'd have a look to see what they have now and came across the Welsh Special Collection. As a result I found the baptism of my 3 x gt grandfather and therefore the names of my 4 x gt grandparents. I'm very pleased with the result, despite the fact that their names are so common in Wales that I think I'll have ground to a halt again!  ;)
