I've been wondering how Dewi Street was transcribed as Devon Street but having now seen the image I can understand.

Some areas are nicely written, others........
CARDIFF:Lord,Griffiths,Barry,Cope,Mahoney ~ PEMBROKESHIRE:Griffiths,Rees,Owen,Thomas ~ ESSEX:Lord,Foreman,Hatch ~ SOMERSET:Lord,Cox,Hockey,Linham,Bryant ~ STAFFORDSHIRE:Cope,Elks,Hackney,Gallimore,Davenport ~ SUFFOLK:Lord,Lockwood,Hatch,Rix,Foreman ~ IRELAND:Barry,Meany,Cummins,Grogan ~
PONTYPRIDD:Leigh,Brooks,Adams,Davies,Thomas ~ KENT:Leigh ~ CHESHIRE:Adams,Tudor,Illidge ~ DENBIGHSHIRE:Edwards,Bolas ~BRECON:Leigh,Thomas,Davies ~SOMERSET:Adams,Keitch,Bridge ~ABERGAVENNY:Minton ~ MERTHYR:.....

It's a shame the enumerators weren't instructed they had to complete the forms in capitol letters and black ink.

The ones that are, are much easier to read.

I've just realised that you can now flick forward and backwards to the next pages, could you do this before?

Well,............. I'm confused ::).
I subscribe on a pay monthly basis and was surprised and very happy to just pop on for something this morning and found I could trawl through the register, (one happy bunny  ;D ), now I've just been back on and searched for someone and it's asking for a credit purchase  ??? was I lucky this morning and They made a mistake or is it a glitch? I'm still confused.

I think you were lucky and it was their mistake! It says clearly on the site that it is just free for annual subscriptions.

you could only move if the family you were after were split across the pages ie parents on 1st page and children on the next

Having worldwide subs I was ''given'' access yesterday and a lovely email explaining how I could look up people.

My problem? Apart from 1 person , who I found out when he passed was born with another name anyway , I have nobody to look up.

There are no Scottish records so I cant even help my stepfather with his family. Wonder if I can ask for a discount on my next lot as I wont use it
