News out of London today, with the excitement around the Who Do You Think You Are?Live! Genealogy event happening, both AncestryUK and FindMyPast have updated their databases and added new collections.
Ancestry's additions involve the census records for the UK. Specifically, for the 1891 census, they have added new records to the England and Wales databases. The updates for the 1861 census records include Isle of Man, Channel Islands and England and the updates for 1911 are for England.
FindMyPast has added an update to their Merchant Seamen database.
Ancestry also has a promo on right now with a 6 month world deluxe subscription available for just $99. This is just a few dollars less than the regular subscription price, but is now only for 6 months instead of 12. World deluxe is not available on a month by month payment scheme, and many people balk at paying for the full subscription up front. This allows you half the cost for half the time. At the end of the 6 months, if you do not cancel, you will be charged the full 12 month renewal fee.
