A while back there was some hoo ha over the companies subscription terms; it seemed that if you didn't subscribe then you lost the relative finder feature. However I noticed something strange this week, my total number of relatives has peaked and seems not to have changed, but I have quite a few new matches. Would it be a case that as newer matches come in that old ones are being lost?
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

If I recall I heard we would keep the RF feature. We wouldn't lose current matches only not gain any new ones.

They also said we would get all updates including new RF matches up to the end of June or July (I think). This may have changed, but I can confirm I am still getting updates for 3 of 4 of my accounts and the subs have expired!

Hmm, there was a while when I would look at the page and the number didn't change and just yesterday I looked and decided to filter by date added and saw names I didn't see before (actually one has been added today). Maybe it may have been people making their profile public.
