FamilyRelatives relaunches with beta site

From FamilyRelatives (

This week sees the exciting re-launch of our upgraded and much improved Familyrelatives website - which is in Beta testing.

It is packed with many new features and information to help you discover even more about your family history. Our new ‘at a glance’ layout will enable you to find records easily, going back to the year 1538.

With over 850 million records from more than a dozen countries including Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, New Zealand, USA, and the Rest of the World (ROW), we are confident that you will find it useful for filling in those frustrating gaps.

Also remember that you have an enormous and fantastic number of FREE records at your disposal - over 90 million at the last count.

Buy a subscription now and view a range of records including Parish Records, Births, Marriages and Deaths, Military, Trade Directories and so much more being added regularly.

For those on a modest budget, Pay Per View allows members to search specific records and we suggest that you view the PPV tab at the top of the main search page to see the latest additions as well as view over 90 million records in the Free Tab.

To celebrate our improved website we’re offering you a great opportunity - Buy 12 Months Subscription for £20.00 and save 33% - that’s an exceptional saving of £10.00 (down from our usual price of £30.00) and matches our best ever discount. To subscribe, visit,X8QX,1GUB2Y,2RCP3,1
