hi folks, Genes also charges for Credits, in Australia it is A$10 for 50 Credits, and one needs them to get any further with Ur search. the 50 Credits only have a user Life of one Week, Possible the same in the UK, this is the only problem with the site, the life of the Credits, otherwise the Genes and Friends Sites are the Best going. I have been asking for the Credits to be used as long as U have them as not everone wants to use them up in one week and not everyone can afford to keep buying Credits, especially not so well of Folks. Happy Searching Folks. Jock in Oz
I have found that www.genesreunited.co.uk is an excellent source. Chose someone in your tree who is dead and has a not too common name. Search the site for this name, including date & place of birth if possible and see if any matching records are found in someone else's tree. Most people that I have contacted there are happy to share information and allow you to view their family tree online.
It helps if you have uploaded your family tree to the site. Remember to hide living individuals.
