Two articles in a row referring you to the Lost Cousins Newsletter! Am I determined that you try it? Or is it just because the founder of Lost Cousins is named Peter?
I just received my link to the April 17 edition of Lost Cousins
. . . and there were 2 things I thought you should know:
1. There is an offer from ScotlandsPeople for 20 free credits – worth about $9 – how often to do you hear about that? Even if you don’t think you need to use them right now you should go and get them. The offer applies to new users and those with existing accounts. This is the best site for people doing research on Scotland. How do you get the free credits? The link is in the Lost Cousins Newsletter! Don’t delay – the offer is only until the end of the April – and then you have a year to use the credits. What does 20 credits buy? One credit to see search results and five credits to see an image. The link at Lost Cousins will take you to an article in a Scottish newspaper.
2. There is a half price offer on subscriptions to FindMyPast – which is a great site for anyone doing British research. Offer only good until midnight UK time on April 31.
There are other things of interest in the Lost Cousins Newsletter. I was interested in the large number of Derbyshire records at FindMyPast, and that they now also have the Derbyshire records from FamilySearch. There is an interesting comment about looking in the same collection in 2 places with a different search engine.
Thank you Peter Calver and Lost Cousins Newsletter
