I still have access to the Library edition. I`m wondering if I always did !!

It is still available until 31/12/2021 - Ancestry/ProQuest have announced that as the final end date for home access. (or perhaps until the next pandemic :-\ )

Hence I'm busy, head down researching at home while I still can.  Must dash.  ;)

What a surprise !!

i logged into my library account to check when my books are due to be returned and Ancestry Library edition is still working !!!!

It says quite clearly that the access was closing on 31st Dec !!!

Obviously I`m going to make the most of it !!

Mine has now disappeared, but as you say, I`ve been grateful to have the use of it remotely !!

I absolutely hammered it for 8 hours yesterday, and today it's gone.

Goodness ! a day`s hard labour !!

I`m just thankful that we were able to have it as long as we did! I will probably start using  the library again as my local one doesn`t get too busy.
