For a limited time (until 1pm on the 17th June 2010) ScotlandsPeople are giving users of their website the chance to re-activate any unused credits that have expired.
As explained on their website, you can bring life back to your expired credits by the use of a special voucher code. These revived credits will then be active for another 90 days. Normally you would need to buy further credits to make use of any expired credits.
This is great news for me, because I have expired credits on the site and I have at least one census image to look up and need to have a look and see if Thomas KINGHORN (my 4x great-grandfather) did actually come from Scotland.
So far I haven’t found any records for my ancestors on the ScotlandsPeople website, even though Thomas KINGHORN (my 3x great-grandfather) was born in Scotland, he was baptised south of the border. Maybe this time it will be different.
Either way it will be good to make use of my currently inaccessible credits, without having to pay for more.
