Ancestry 12 Month Subscription $199.99 for Aus Records or $239.99 for Worldwide (Approx 20% Off)


Usually an Ancestry subscription costs the following for a 6 month subscription:

  • Key Australia & UK Records - $99.99
  • All Australia, NZ, UK & Ireland Records - $139.99
  • Everything on Ancestry (Worldwide) - $169.99

But if you use the Gift Membership option you get the following prices:

  • All Australia, NZ, UK & Ireland Records - $109.99 for 6 months or $199.99 for 12 months
  • Everything on Ancestry (Worldwide) - $139.99 for 6 months or $239.99 for 12 months

You can send the gift subscription to yourself (so you don't need a second account) and you can choose when it starts as well.

Note: You're meant to get an email to confirm the subscription after your purchase, but when I tested this I didn't get one until the day I nominated the subscription to start and then I got two.

Also worth noting you can access most of Ancestry for free at a library, but for those that want a bit more this may be worth it.

    All those 999s in the prices tell you their market research says their customers are stupid.


    What do you get for paying that much money? Can you stream movie or music?

      You get a DNA report that varies greatly from other DNA report providers. These services appear to be scams.

      You also give the Government or anyone that pays possibly access to your DNA record for life. They have no obligation to inform you about any health risks you may face but they'll sell that information to your private insurance provider without telling you.

      I've found it useful for some family history stuff. Ancestry have access to a lot of useful databases, and of course all of the family tree data that other people have added. It's worth doing the trial first of course as you can usually get most of your research done before the trial runs out.

    Most library's have free access wordwide.


      The problem with the library version is you can't save information directly to your tree. You have to email it to yourself and then attach it, which becomes tiresome if there's a lot of information.
      I've used both versions, and for some stuff the library version was fine, but other times when I was specifically building a tree or researching some people it became annoying going back and forth between versions.

    Does anyone know if there's a company that does DNA tests cheaply WITHOUT selling/providing your data to any third parties (and preferably either deletes it on your request or stores it completely encrypted and anonymized).
