  • Links would help.

  • I'm intrigued now! Any chance ye can share with the rest of the class? Anything of relevance to me/us?

  • Yes, rather than cryptic references can ye be specific about what exactly the problem is, thanks.

  • I tried to post a link but I haven't been here long enough.

  • Can you describe the issues being alluded to?

  • I wasn't planning on reading it.

    Okay, I'll have a look

  • The gist seems to be, a link to an offer was posted but some people in Ireland can't get the offer, some have used a VPN to pretend they are in the UK, worked for some not others.

    The price is £89.99 for Worldwide.

  • Not having posted here in a few years, I wasn't sure what links or references to other websites were allowed here. If you look on page 8 to 10 of the rootschat thread (see mindhorn's link) you'll see how some Irish people availed of the half-price Ancestry offer. Both worldwide and Ireland/Uk half price offers should be available.

    I hope the info will be useful to some of you.☺️

  • My initial reading of BowWow's post gave me the wrong impression that there was something to be wary of when renewing subscriptions to Ancestry.

    But all it is is a workaround to get the best offer available.

    Good call folks but in future don't be afraid to spell it out for those of us less nimble of brain!😊

  • Hi,

    I've always understood links to another forum were a no-no. So apologies for that.

    I'm the Barkerk2610 poster in RootsChat. I tried a VPN and got 50% off - also used by another forum member. Amount payable in one payment, not monthly.


  • Hi

    I thought the same, and didn't want the mod to be on my case! At least I'll know that it's ok to post links in the future. BowWow, thanks for the heads up on the VPN over on Rootschat, I'm frostyknight over there, and was delighted to obtain a half price world subscription to Ancestry. Let's hope many more people in Ireland are able to access the offer.

  • I'm dublin1850 there and initially had some trouble but got the half price offer eventually.

    It's a much more sensible price for ancestry I think.
