RadixIndex is 10 years old - 10 weeks of celebration with at least 100,000 new records to be added weekly

RadixLog is back with some great news. These days my RadixIndex site became ten years old. To celebrate the anniversary RadixIndex has a 10 weeks record addition campaign, at the end of which the number of available records should grow to 2 millions. The free records policy has been changed for the better, too - I believe. By April about 20% of the records will be freely available.

Let me quote the first paragraph from the news item announcing the anniversary:

RadixIndex, the subscription-based website providing genealogists and local historians with Hungary-related databases was launched on February 1, 2010. Now, on the occasion of its tenth birth day I would like improve RadixIndex services by taking steps ahead, one at a time. First of the main elements in this process is the addition of 100,000 new records every week during the following 10 weeks - this way the record count should reach 2 million records by April. The other major change is the transformation of the free records policy. Instead of the former practice of the free availability status of newly added records the records containing the 70 most frequent surnames become available for anyone. Every day during the 70 day period of 10 February - 20 April one surname from the most frequent list is added to the freely available set. This new system is first applied to the RadixRef database, which is to be followed by other existing or coming databases.
