    I say "If I remember rightly ..." - the phrase used by members of both sides of my family and so the one I grew up hearing.
    I'm a bit confused, I thought rightly means justly or sensibly? I feel in your example it's to mean correctly, therefore, shouldn't it be right?

    See definition 3 here.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
