Subscription and PPV Sites Poll

Here are the results of our 15th Unlock the Past poll - What subscription or pay per view online content sites do you use? 167 people voted casting a total of 603 votes. Ancestry clearly had the largest following but Find My Past - who operate Find My Past, 1911 Census, Ancestors on Board and Genes Reunited - attracted a large number of votes as well. Sites that are regional, such as ScotlandPeople, naturally attracted a smaller but still strong vote. Though a reasonably new player, World Vital Records recorded a stronger vote than some older sites. The obvious, main focus for respondents was sites with a large British / Australian data collection.
