Take the Plunge and try Find My Past

Decided to take a break from writing about my Irish research to share a great deal with all of you. Earlier this week I received an email from Find My Past, informing me that they will be offering a free weekend for researchers. The terms and conditions are as follows:

Free access lasts from 12:00pm midday (GMT) on Friday 7th November 2014 until 11:59am (GMT) on Monday 10 November 2014. To access the records you will need to be signed in at Findmypast: you can register for free using your name, email address and country of residence. The free access excludes the UK Electoral Registers (2002-2013) and the UK Companies House Directors (2002-2013) record sets. Current Findmypast Local subscribers (whilst they have an active Britain, Ireland, US & Canada or Australia & New Zealand subscription) will be able to access all World records (except those listed above) during the free access weekend. Current Findmypast World subscribers (with active World subscriptions expiring after 11:59am (GMT) on Friday 7 November 2014, excluding Findmypast Library accounts) will have an additional three days added on to their subscription. Free access is subject to our fair usage policy: each account may view up to a maximum of 1,000 records per day.1

It is important to note that all of the records will not be available for free, it clearly excludes the UK Electoral Registers (2002-2013) and the UK Companies House Directors (2002-2013) record sets.

Please keep in mind that you will need to create an account in order to view the records.

I currently do not have an active subscription to their website, so I will be spending time trying to find anything I can on my Irish Ancestors.

Good luck in your searching!
