stay away. i paid £20 and found that much of the website does not work. i found some records but the family tree tab doesn't work. the data quality is patchy. the search facility is poor. i have now asked for my money back. so far no response. the website states that it is beta version but what exactly does this mean - they don't say. they really should not be charging anyone anything for the use of this site until they have developed it a lot more. i should have read the reviews on this site… Read Full Review

Received an email special offer for £20 and thought I would try it although compared to the cost of other ancestry websites it did seem too good to be true. Made the mistake of not testing the plug in first as downloads have never been a problem with other ancestry websites of which I have been a member for 12 yrs. Downloaded the plug in but couldn't download any images even after following all the advice on the help section and advice on DjVu website. Sent three emails to familyrelatives but… Read Full Review

I have used this site now for a few years and it is a very good website, its very clear and well thought out, it has a good information & help section. Not only does it have the BMDs which are transcribed but military and parish records also a free family tree which I use.
When you consider the cost of other websites the price of units or the annual subscription on Familyrelatives it is good value. By the way you can check your Unit balance in My Account as well.

I agree you do not know how many units you are using. They seem to go very quickly. disappointing site. Put in information in I know to be correct but it came up with no results. I e-mailed them to this effect but have not had the courtesy of a reply. will not use this site again. didn't like much about the site. have used much better ones.would have liked some kind of free trial to ascertain what I aould be able to research… Read Full Review

I have found the Family Relatives indexing better than most and the search results was better than Ancestry - the period 1921-1982 BMD is the same as other website i.e. on 1st and last name on the page. The amount of data is excellent for the cost of only £30.00 and has quite a lot of free data for the US. Coverage for England and Wales data and Irish data was very good. Customer service - I only had to get in touch once and got a response in less than 24hours. Found the Information section… Read Full Review

You don't get told how many credits you are spending when viewing pages and browsing records. Suddenly you realise you have used up all your credits, and you haven't found anything useful. For me £6 went in about 5 minutes searching on www.familyrelatives.org… Read Full Review

This online genealogy website offers some good information. Unfortunately when I wish to access a record it keeps asking me to log in although I am already logged in.
I have reported this to the site but they do not reply to emails.
I have amended my privacy settings for this site and done all that is suggested by them on their help page.
I would not recommend anyone to take out a subscription for a site that for me has simply not delivered… Read Full Review

The most frustrating genealogy website I have so far personally used. If you do manage to get hold of some information you are constantly "logging in", and eventually the site "dies" Frequently you think you are getting somewhere only to find the information won't open even though you are logged in and "cookie enabled".
I have asked for my subscription back- waste of time because nobody has yet answered my email it seems.
Useful information is there if you are lucky enough to be able to access… Read Full Review

Wrong page keeps coming up. My work is doing genealogy. Very disappointing. Tells me too change my password. I have done this twice already. Not necessary as far as I am concerned.
I am very disappointed with amilyrelatives.org right now. I enjoyed it when it was working the way I expected it to. Until they correct my problems I do not recommend Family Relatives.org… Read Full Review

I ordered £5 worth of searches. When I entered my credit card number and went to the next page, it had defaulted to £37.50 years subscription. There was a button that said 'confirm order' so I DIDN'T press it as I didn't want to spend that much. It still charged me though. I've sent three emails to familyrelatives and they have never replied. There is no postal address to write to. I'm am really sickened by this as they don't even have the courtesy to contact me (yet anyway) - despite having… Read Full Review

Very good website - no browsing for Births, Deaths or Marriages for many more years than other websites. I.e. you don't have to look through each quarter - in that respect its great as is the price it is half that of other websites. It would be nice to see more data but in the last 2 months they have added over 200 million so I guess they are working on it… Read Full Review

FamilyRelatives - I came across this little know site but what a difference. I have been able to find four of my ancestors already at a fraction of the cost of other websites. It has 150 million fully searchable names - I searched on surname forename and district and found three of the entries almost immediately. I was also unsure of the exact district for one ancestor and searched on area, e.g., Hampshire, which was really useful.
The main difference with this website is that it has… Read Full Review
