I look forward to it every week! Even if most of the new collections are not useful to me. It's the anticipation that they might be.

In 2018 I'd really love some major additions - proper coverage of new counties. Access to original images.

More newspaper coverage of certain places would be welcome too, though the newspaper database is already a great resource.

Re anticipation of new discoveries

It seems to me that this is analogous with gambling or drug addiction. The more one discovers about ones ancestors the more one wants to know. It is quite thrilling when you discover some tit-bit of information whether it be hear-say or recorded fact.
