Big delays following Probate record cost cut to £1.50

In July I was excited to get an email from WDYTYA Magazine with a significant change and a link to the web site: "Government cuts probate record cost to £1.50 for next 12 months"

Even better, when I searched I was advised of a 10 working day turnaround, confirmed in the acknowledgement email. I ordered a few wills.

September 2019 issue

The information on page 12 "2021 Irish census to include 'time capsule' question" states that the UK census will become publically available in January 2022, that is not true as the Scottish Census will become available in June 2021 after the expiry of 100 years and one day.

I read in the mag recently (I think!) that a mark of X on a certificate doesn't always mean that person was illiterate but now, wanting to give a friend the details it gave, I cannot find it again. I've searched the forum, Googled various combinations of describing it and looked through magazines, but cannot find anything. Just wondered if anyone has the details of where and when it was please!

Regarding the article on records and the Lothian areas of Scotland (page 77 onwards) researchers might like to know that the areas were previously known by other names. Haddingtonshire became East Lothian, Edinburghshire became Midlothian and Linlithgowshire became West Lothian. It is nice to see in the article the correct spelling of Midlothian, not Mid Lothian!.

A fond farewell A fond farewell

Hello everyone,

I'm very sorry to say that today will be my last day at Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine. After six-and-a-half years on the team, I'm now flying the nest and leaving to pursue new challenges (and all of those clichés!)

Although most of the recent forum duties have been carried out by my excellent colleague, Rosemary Collins, I've thoroughly enjoyed being part of such a passionate and engaged online community. I've ...
