New Genes Reunited subscription options

Press notice from Genes Reunited (www.genesreunited.co.uk):

GENES REUNITED LAUNCH A NEW TAILORED SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE

Family history enthusiasts no longer have to pay for record sets they don’t use

Genes Reunited, one of the UK’s leading genealogy websites, today launches a set of new payment options that will enable users to tailor their subscription to the record sets they wish to use.

The choice of additional features will mean that members no longer have to pay one lump sum for access to records they have no use for; instead members will now be able to create their own package by adding the record sets they want to use.*

Initially the additional records package will include a collection of migration records, including passenger lists, passport applications and Indian records, with further record sets being added over the coming months.

Genes Reunited provides easy, online access to over 750 million records dating as far back as 1761. This allows family historians and novice genealogists to search for their ancestors among comprehensive collections of military records, census records, migration data, as well as the original comprehensive birth, marriage and death records.

Rhoda Breakell, Head of Genesreunited.co.uk, says: “The new additional features system will enable members to have more flexibility when researching their family history, without being charged for records that are not relevant to them. Our new packages will make things even easier for family history enthusiasts and at a lower cost to our users.”

* The initial ‘Travel and Overseas’ additional feature package will be priced at £14.95 for 12 months and is available to those who upgrade to the platinum package. Platinum membership currently costs £6.67 per month on a 12-month subscription.

Comment - this threw me for a bit, as I could not see the new option on the GR website, so assume the site will be updated soon.
