Re: British genealogy website facility: how useful is it? #general

I tried the site twice -- and crashed the computer.
The site allowed me to search but returned an error message saying that
what I was doing was not allowed. And then the computer crashed before I
could do anything else.

I tried, but.

1. This "Jewish Chronicle's family name search allowed me to make a
search on 3 family names, then stopped accepting more. In each case
I was told I would read the results in forthcoming issues of the Jewish
Chronicle.

2. They have a Genealogy site, which requires registration (free). I
could not get into this because my suggested passwords (alphabet,
alphanumeric) were all rejected without reason.

Can any of our British genners offer advice on how this works and what we
must do to get in?

the genealogy section is by joining their "gold club". And how does one
join this illustrious body??? By subscribing to the actual newspaper."
