The Original Record - half price sale

The Original Records website ( has just announced a Half-Price Sale for a limited, but undefined, period. The prices of all subscriptions and scans have been reduced by 50%, but this does not include DVDs/Ebooks.

The Original Record is one of those sites that I desperately want to sing the praises of - it has some genuinely useful and rare digitised materials on it for all of the British Isles - but it has always had the most bizarre payment and search systems, making it difficult to engage with and predominantly useful for those carrying out one-name studies. A half price sale is therefore a very welcome development, and I would encourage you to explore it - but you may still find some records to be pricey and the experience frustrating.


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
