The website is free to use this weekend. I shall be seeing if anything new pops up for my family tree.

Has anyone had their DNA tested via Ancestry? My results came through today but I have a query about interpreting them. TIA.

No, I haven't Sparklefizz, sorry

As I am a member of Ancestry I thought I'd take a look to see if I could access the worldwide records but no. The free weekend gives access to British and Irish records only. However, be warned that, even though I logged in as usual and tried to do some more research, I had an advert popping up continually - every time I went back to the research pages in fact. Over half an hour that was about 12 times and very, very annoying.

That advert is annoying, never had that before even on free weekends.

It's not just me getting it then!

Thanks Jalima

Spent the last three hours on there! No advert popping up today.

Perhaps people complained about it.

It’s always free to use Ancestry and other similar websites at your local library.

Jalima1108 Sun 26-Aug-18 20:39:23

I think you can access Worldwide too at the library.

Yes, I had mine done about 6 months ago and found several cousins had also had theirs done. I was able to confirm several ancestors on my tree were correct. smile
