Cathy, just caught it myself today on ancestry.
Apparently it started yesterday.
I hope everyone can find the time to take advantage
of this, it is a wonderful collection.

Valarie This may sound a silly question and I know this offer from Ancestry states 'through April 30' but can you dip in and out until then or is it a one off search you can do?

Hi Emmy :D , I believe it's unlimited.
I haven't seen any disclaimers.

Also, not free but new (in case you want
us to check anything out)

Ancestry.com Launches Complete Scotland Census Collection,
1841-1901

PROVO, Utah, April 12 -- Ancestry.com, the world's largest online
resource for family history, today revealed the Scottish ancestral
roots of five of the biggest names in U.S. business. Trump,
Carnegie, Bell, Forbes and Buick all hail from Scotland, as
researchers discovered from the more than 24 million names
in the newly completed Scotland Census Collection
on Ancestry.com.

This is wonderful, I accidently discovered it via Steve Morse's site for the Boston Passenger lists. When I clicked on the link it opened. For a minute I thought I had inadvertently joined again.

I love Ancestry, just wish I could afford all of their databases. $39. is too steep for my budget, I would have to cut out groceries and gas!

Many thanks Valerie

I can get the Scottish information from
www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk I'm sure its about £6 for 30 credits and recently they have extended the time you have to use them - I'm sure its a month now but before you only had 7 days and if the credits were not used within that time you had to buy another £6 and the credits not used from the previous time would be added on.

Me being me I always remembered something I was to look up when the 7 days were up.

God Bless
