Yes, I do.    I can choose from World, Australia/New Zealand, Ireland, Britain (and the component parts  :)), USA and Canada.

If there is a particular record set that you are wondering about...I can check and see if I have it under my subscription.

Thanks for responses everyone.

Great, RunKitty. It is more encouraging to hear that from you than from FindMyPast, that the Ultimate package does seem to cover the same as the 'old' World/Premium package. They really need to change their wording on the US subscription page to make it clearer that 'world' records are included in the new Ultimate British & Irish package.



Mind you, it now begs the question why people who remain on world are having renewal invited at $239.50 or being encouraged to auto-renew at $203.58, and are being told this is an unbeatable loyalty offer, yet people who subscribe via the new Ultimate package, with apparently identical access to same record sets, are being charged $179.

Personally, I don't need anything in particular. I had let my sub lapse and became concerned about access when I read the original post. It is good to know I'll still have the same records available when I eventually sign up again.

As can be seen from the above, the US site's Ultimate package, doesn't mention access to, for example, US newspapers, Australian/New Zealand records, hence the original questions in opening post of this thread.

At least the UK site's Pro package and the Australian site's World package seem to be clearer about coverage.

The new title for the US subscription doesn't help either, and to me, is confusing, rather than an improvement.
