Re: Stirnet - Soon To Be Pay-To-View

Is it worth a damn as it is?

According to an announcement on the Stirnet genealogy site
(, by the end of September (possibly sooner, after a "trial
period") it will become a pay-to-view site. Rates for viewing (after the
trial) are announced to be 5 pounds per week, 12.50 per month, 25 per
quarter, 52 per year. Seems a bit pricy, especially for the shorter
periods....wonder if it will be worth it....

Also, it would behoove potential subscribers to read about Stirnet's use of
PayPal for payments, especially if you're paying in currency other than
pounds sterling. Caveat emptor....
