Anyone else using Ancestry this morning?
« on: Monday 15 February 16 11:14 GMT (UK) »
Have Ancestry been having a Free Weekend which I haven't heard about? I've been able to see everything this morning without a subscription. Is this just me?

Shhh.... keep it quiet ;)

It seems to have been only advertised for UK and Irish records on the US site, which may explain if your account is on one of the other sites why no email was received. :-\
