    Last year I paid £151.05 and to renew this year in October they are listing £159.99 paying from Canada . It's mainly worth it for the continuing additions to the Newspaper Archives and my WWI and WWII research.

    I've just been taking advantage of the 50% discount to download some more images from the 1921 census (using the Lost Cousins link). I found my husband's grandmother as a live-in servant, her age being given as 14 years 3 months. She was actually 13 years 10 months at the time of the census, and thus probably should have been at school, as I understand the school leaving age was raised to 14 in 1918. I wonder if her employer added a few months to her age so as not to be seen to be employing an under-age girl. Or perhaps her mother had told the employer she was a few months older than she was. Her mother was a working widow, so presumably it was convenient for her daughter to leave school early and go into service.

    My great aunt was housekeeper to a man whose forenames are transcribed as Mary Frank, but the image is clearly Harry Frank. I have reported the transcription error by email without purchasing the transcript (as previously mentioned by Pauline).

    It certainly happened a lot in the 19th century, although then it was usually a ploy to get a higher rate of pay.

    The price for new subscribers is now £179.99, and the Loyalty Discount is still 15%, so I would expect you to be charged £155.99
