Free access to Findmypast this weekend

Findmypast has announced free access to records in its collection this weekend. Free access will be from 7 a.m. tomorrow, March 6, until 6:59 a.m. on Monday, March 9.

Records available will include:
*Over 900 million census records from across the UK, USA and Ireland
*Passenger lists for ships sailing to and from Europe, Australia,
New Zealand, and the U.S.
*Birth, marriage and death records dating back to the 18th century
*UK military records
*Irish family history records
*Historical newspapers from across the world

To celebrate International Women’s Day, on March 8 at 7 am, Findmypast will be hosting a webinar on searching for women in their historical records. As, historically, women’s names changed or were not recorded, finding female ancestors can be tricky.

To help everyone make the most of the free weekend, Findmypast has also created a new Getting Started video which will be available all weekend.

To start searching the records, go to:

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.
