Somewhat belatedly, I do aim to do so at the start of the year, I’d like to disclose and acknowledge the courtesies extended by some commercial genealogy companies.
From MyHeritage, a free subscription, invitations to online briefings, and this year, the nice insulated drinking flask that arrived by mail.
From Findmypast, a free subscription which his year includes a discount on 1921 census images.
From Ancestry.ca, a free subscription as a member of the Canadian Advisory Board and invitations to briefings on developments.
On request, I sometimes receive review copies of books from Global Genealogy and Pen & Sword.
Do these mean I pay attention to company developments? Yes, but not to the exclusion of others such as TheGenealogist, Legacy Family Tree Webinars, and The British Newspaper Archive (which has now passed 47 million pages available.)
