    Thanks for the heads up Margery. This offer is more useful to me than the recent US offer.

    Same for me - Australia had more of lure for my ancestors than USA. I have just spent 'too long' tidying up the Aussie bit of my tree, disposing of some hangers on and finding some marriages I didn't know of.

    I'm not sure "lure" is the right word - "deportation" would be more accurate. ;) In my case, I should have added. :(

    Of my relatives it seems to be the case that they went of their own accord.

    Any ideas how to take advantage of this? It either wants me to login and then upgrade to worldwide subscription, or register for a 14 day trial.

    Anne, I just logged in with my basic (free) UK-based subscription and had no problems seeing the records.

    After logging in to Ancestry scroll to bottom of page and select Australia.

    Even without selecting the Australian site I have quite a number of "hints" for Australian records showing up in the UK site.

    Just tried again, and it worked this time.
