Well that was a come on. It finds records but then you need to pay to see them.


    I think you missed something. As stated in the article: “No card details, no subscription, just completely free.” You should contact TheGenealogist customer service to obtain assistance.


    The records that are free are the 1911 Census, The Civil Registration BMDs, the Image Archive and the Discover Your Ancestors Periodical. If you don’t search them individually
    then the Master Search will show you also matching results in all record sets. You can select the Census Year 1911 in the Master Search so it doesn’t show you other years of census.You can also search civil registration BMDs in the side panel after using the Master Search.


I would like to further my readers here and see any more famous family connections I am related to.


Was going to check this out and after entering one name was required to pay


    If you signed up to the Free First Steps subscription and were logged in to the First steps subscription no payment is required or asked for when searching Births, Marriages or Deaths within Civil Registration records or if you select to search the 1891, 1901 or 1911 census. Please contact our staff if you are still having difficulty.
