    Can I just point out that this isn't getting any housework done? :)

    Found a couple of gems already.

    Many, many thanks to @demeler for posting this. I spent the whole weekend finding lots of helpful items, including some photos and a long-sought obit for Hubby's great-great-grandmother that includes her father's name, which will get us back another generation on that line! Yeehaw! 8(:-)

    I returned to my search too late - and now I can see a snippet with an ancestor's name dangling just out of reach. Isn't it always the way? :sceptical:

    I do have reservations about putting bank details in for a free 7-day trial. Thought hard about last night because I could see that the local rag in New Jersey was welcoming my ancestors from Yorkshire after they emigrated.

    Why do sites actually request bank details like this? If I found the trial was beneficial, I would take out a sub at the end of it and be happy to provide my bank details. If I didn't make use of it, I wouldn't.

    Or do they just hope that for every few people that untick the auto-renew box, another one will forget. :sceptical:

    Do you know which newspaper it was? Might be able to find it elsewhere, or a reprint in a different paper.

    You're welcome.:)

    I am also yeehawing as I picked up a number of gems.

    By adding a payment wall for free trials, I think it is also to limit use.
    If it was just an email address, then a person could have multiple upon
    multiple free trials.

    Ah, that would make sense, Demeler. :)

    Thank you, Barb - I have my NJ snippet now. :)
