    I have tried to find Irish records on there and am not having any luck. Is this one of those times where you still need to give them a c/c to access the free records or is it only good for free in the UK?

    Just tried out and find that of course there is a catch as you have to sign up for a free 14 day trial, so in my mind that is not free access to the records. I hate companies that do this sort of thing, although I have been a My Heritage member for some years now. The only thing I do like is that if you do not renew your membership then they very aggressively offer you a discount that gets bigger and bigger the longer you hold out, so my last membership renewal came with a nice 80% off

    I was quite looking forward to some research when I read OP but I've decided not to bother. Disingenuous I think.

    Yes totally agree...always bear in mind that there is no such thing as a free lunch.

    Posted this on their Facebook page....."A bit of a cheek to tout this as free access when you then demand that you have to sign up for a free 14 day trial. This is not free access but a come on, shame on you"

    The bigger some companies get & the more money some people have - the more, and bigger they want.
