Good to hear that the link also worked for you Norma.  I waited to see if they offered any more than the 30%.  A reminder today offered the same 30% discount, so thought I had better renew before I missed it, so have just renewed the 12 months Pro subscription myself  ;)

Which library is that?
My library (Oxfordshire) is giving home access to Ancestry, but not to Find My Past.

Thanks for the tip.  My county library is giving free access to ancestry but ancestry is only offering free access to the county records.

Free access is given to all of findmypast records and I've spent a couple of hours enjoying some success.

My local town library webpage links to the Lancashire county library.

There's quite a palaver getting to the appropriate webpage that gives links to ancestry and FindMyPast.

Here's the link :-

Thanks .... I see anyone can join the library but alas, it looks as though access to subscription services is only available to county residents.
