    Whoo pathetic ee, with a capacity of 20,000 pages a day, that 135,000 pages is a cozy 7 days work in March. Whatever happened to the other 24 days? Not content with just botching the BNA ‘service’ for PAYING customers, Bright Solid has also completely botched the findmypast,com service for even more PAYING customers……..without so much as a drumroll! There was a bumfluffy response from a FMP ostrich on April 6, but he then hid his name behind Admin, buried his head in the sand & hasn’t been seen or heard from since! And why not? Only 1,800 highly critical comments from extremely disgruntled PAYING customers!
