Here is the reply I have received from Findmypast. I won't comment any further ....
Thank you for your email.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any specific date for release of these records or if
they will ever be made available. The records are from an external source and although our
customer’s interest is very important to us, we do have to consider the external resource
and their wishes also.
However, once we do have dates for release, we will send out a newsletter to our customers
advising them of the latest, exciting developments. Please ensure that you are signed up
for the newsletter as this is how the announcement will be made.
