This month my Ancestry membership is due, and I found the new cost of world-wide membership just a bit steep at £155! Because my CUMPSTON research is world- wide I need this level of membership too so there is no way to avoid the stark reality – I needed to find a cheaper way of renewing. (See the link below about Ancestry’s profits and buy out proposals).
A quick google and I found that the UK National Trust is offering 25% off ancestry annual membership! A quick phone call to 0800 404 9723 and this offer was confirmed. Next year I will look out for other offers but if you know of any do tell me and I will include them here.
