Hello John, not the response you would expect from Find my Past. I have decided to wait a while and see what happens re the charges.

Be aware that if you have bought only the image (because you don't need or want the transcription) and you spot an error in the transcription from a discrepancy between the search results and the image, then as at the time of writing this, you will need to buy the transcription as well in order to report the error. The "Report an error" button on the image is only for image-related problems.

When their chat person confirmed this to be the case, I told them to shove it.

Right click the image to see the ‘front’ page with the address and then download. Or go to ‘extra materials’ then ‘front’. If you leave the record before finding the other page and go back in via ‘my records’ you only get the data in image format. But if you repeat the search you can then view as above. Pain / faff but it works.

Andrew Braid 

You're not being stupid - I've not looked yet, but someone said that this problem exists. However, from the image, there is supposed to be a button that takes you to associated stuff - I'm not sure whether they knew that this took you to the (transcribed?) address, or whether that was simply an avenue to explore.

This isn't from my experience - this is just my suggestion to explore...

I'm guessing that the address isn't on the schedule side of the page?

Hint to find families in 1921
 
This is a bit of a faff but it does work
 
1. Search for a known person e.g. Anthony Knibbs born 1920
2. When the results come up (only 1), hover your cursor over the image links
3. This will show you then name of the individual plus the 1st two names on the page
4. It will also show you how many others are on the page
   In this Example we get Anthony, Elizabeth Emma, Frederick and 4 others
5. So we now know that there are 7 people in the household.
6. Remove the forename and date of birth from the search
7. Fill in Parish and Registration District and Search
8. This search should now find all the people of the same surname in that location.
     25 people in this example
9. One by one hover your cursor over the links until you find people in the same household
10. Note the extra names each time you find one.

If you bother to scroll down below the search screen there is lots of useful information (as with any FMP search screen) and explains exactly what you get if the purchase with the transcription or the image

I was wondering the same thing.

When viewing the scan, there is a button labelled 'Transcripts', but that just takes you to the page to pay for the transcript.

However, if you click on the 'Extra Materials' button, you get the option to view the 'Original Image', the 'Cover' and the 'Front'. If you click on 'Front' it gives you another image which does indeed have the street address. Bit of a faff, though.

If you don't see any of these options, click on the 'Open filmstrip' button at the bottom right while viewing the scan.

That's the same as me -- I started using 1837online when it went live (as a PAY PER VIEW site) in April 2003, and stuck with it when it morphed into FindMyPast in 2005 and ever since. If you've been using FindMyPast for 19 years, you've just had a memory glitch about the pay per view content -- or waited to use it until it was wrapped up in a subscription. Although 1837online never had a subscription, IIRC...

You can get a small discount on each record if you have an FMP Pro subscription. So if you have a large number of records you need to obtain. The upgrade to Pro might pay for itself.

I'm surprised you didn't know about the costs. It has been well advertised especially on their site.


Personally disappointed that while I found my paternal grandfather this morning who I have yet to locate in 1911, I cannot find my maternal grandparents and children even using DOB and 'similar' filters.


Best Wishes

Subject: [family-historian] 1921 census

After being very excited about the census, and also paying a subscription to Find my Past, I eagerly awaited this morning to continue the research on my extensive family tree.
However I have to pay £2.50 for every document I look at.  Goodness knows how much that would cost.

Anyone else finding this outcome  disappointing? Or has anyone a way round it.

Thanks

You had to pay for access to both the 1911 census and the 1939 register when they both first come out

Past history would suggest about 5/6 months before it becomes a part of the subscription - with a cost of something like 25m for scanning, transcribing and putting it online has to be recovered somehow

I shall do the essential family and what I need to be to lecture on it and then leave the rest till later - always lots of other things to do!
