Hello RootsChat Members,

Thank you to all for your comments so far.

I have just checked the Canadian Ancestry site, offering (50% off)  Memberships,
'Everything on Ancestry World Deluxe' ($64.99 Canada, for 6-months).

Currency Conversion: Canadian $s - to - Australian $s = $66.1660

Can anyone please tell me, if I was to purchase from the Canadian Site, would I still be able to  access all Australian and UK records.

Thanking you,
Jeanette H.

Hi Jeanette, Please see my post directly preceding yours. I bought my subscription from the Swedish site and just signed in to Ancestry Canada site and my hints worked OK and I was able to search Swedish and Australian records without any problems.

Hello Glyn,

Thank you for your Post, and for checking the Canadian site.  I did go into the Swedish site, but then I remembered that Canada's Currency value is very similar to Australia. 
It would appear that the availability of records are the same, no matter from which site one chooses to Login into.

I am just amazed at the price difference on the Australian site, compared to Canada (in particular), it just does not make sense. 

We will probably go with the Canadian Conversion, (we have until 10th January, to decide). 
We will report back and let you know how things go.

Thanking you,
Jeanette H.

Hello RootsChat Members,

We decided to go ahead with the World Deluxe Membership, on the Canadian Ancestry site.
6-Months for $64.99  +  $6.50 Tax  = $71.49 (Canada-$) 
The Currency Conversion Total in Canadian-to-Australian-$ = $76.83 (AU-$)


Which is certainly a much more preferable amount to pay, than the $169.99 (Australian World-Wide 6-Month Membership.

We have signed into the Canadian site, and briefly tried searching Australian BMDs and UK Census records, then signed out. 
Then signed into the Australian site, did the same searches, all works well at this stage.

So thank you again to everyone,
Jeanette H.

Even after the 10 th January as mentioned above - don't forget the ancestry.co.uk site
using the link below.  Worldwide for 12 months 89-99
This is an offer we have used for 5/6 years now, perhaps not as well published as some offers, hopefully its slipped under the radar.

You can log in to any of the ancestry sites and see the same records as discussed with glywri on this other thread

Lovely to see everyone getting a bargain in these hard times.
