I did not, Glen. I successfully created two free accounts and uploaded my own and OH's raw data without any payment information. I'm not sure who gets to see my user name, though, which they have told me is my full email address. That gives me pause. It also gave me pause when I clicked on the email link to the tree they started for me and saw my first and last name and year of birth splashed across the screen. I have yet to investigate whether that is visible to others without my permission or not. I read most all of their legalese yesterday but I've forgotten already.

It doesn't normally show email addresses to others, Janet.

I sort of thought not, but it's a new site for me. I am reassured. Thanks, Kite.

My problem is that as far as I am aware I have never joined the site but somebody did give me access to their information and somehow my email address is linked to their name so when I try to sign up I'm told my email address belongs to someone else!!

My results are in and the ethnicity results are a slight surprise.

North and West Europe

81.1%
English
54.9%
Irish, Scottish, and Welsh
26.2%
South Europe
10.9%
Iberian
10.9%
East Europe
8.0%
Balkan
8.0%

Ancestry makes no hint of Iberian and Balkan!

I have no evidence at all in my tree of ancestors from Iberia or the Balkans!!

I wouldn't give it too much credence, Elizabeth.

My results are
52.6%
North and West European
31.6%
Irish, Scottish, and Welsh
14.7%
English
1.1%
Middle Eastern

against Ancestry results,
73% England Wales and North Western Europe,
21% Ireland and Scotland
3% Sweden
3% Norway
All these I expected as ancestors are from Northumberland, Cumberland, Durham, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
No Middle Eastern and not something I'd expect to find.
