Personal Note: At the top of the HOME page in the left corner you will find a link that says "Watch our TV adverts"  (watch their TV commercials) they are short but cute and worth watching.  AND apparently there is a 14 day free trial. I might just take advantage of that to get started and get comfortable with the website.  


 

(WOW!! Isn't this exciting! I can hardly wait till all the records are online at findmypast.co.uk and then I might be able to find out more about my Welsh ancestors - JAMES & JONES. (OK maybe)This exert below is from the news section of findmypast.co.uk)
