Just got an email...

Haven't looked at this website for a while, so wondering if it's a good deal or not

They don't seem to have added any new records to search for a while - I check every so often and haven't seen anything new. They have the BMD indexes but most of those are available for free on FreeBMD anyway, and most of what they call "parish registers" turn out to be Phillimore's transcriptions - which you can often find for free elsewhere on the internet. So I wouldn't recommend it unless you see there is something on there that you are particularly interested in.

The relaunched site does look nicer than it did before, though. But needs more content.

Yes, I did get a bit excited when I saw parish registers... only to discover the coverage wasn't that brilliant I can't see it being that useful for my stage of research... shame really
