Guest's review of Family Relatives www.familyrelatives.org

“You don't get told how many credits you are spending...”

☆☆☆☆☆

written by on 09/05/2009

Good Points
Some extra databases compared with ancestry.com

Bad Points
Very poor search and indexing.

General Comments
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.

To find out the balance of your Units, login go to My Account and select Membership details.

Generally it is 1 Unit to view an image and 2 Units to view a transcribed record or page. Check the website for the Pay per view cost of records.

For search and indexing - for the BMD period 1837 to 1865 & 1921 to 1983 the images are partially transcribed on surname and forename range.

When you perform a search the results take you to the page where the result may appear and you must view the image and find the name you are searching.

There are four types of Databases on Familyrelatives.com where records have been either fully transcribed, partially transcribed on a "surname range" basis, browseable records with images and OCRed records.

We always recommend you read the helpful information on each search page or view the website tour and user guides.
