FindMyPast is offering free access to 2.7 billion records this weekend. Included in the offer is birth, marriage, and death records, census, military, immigration, directories, the 1939 Register, and more.
Most of these collections are British but also include ship lists going to and from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, North America and more; the Catholic Heritage Archive of North American, British, and Irish records. It appears that FindMyPast is offering access to almost all of their collections (except for newspapers, PERSI, and UK Electoral Registers).
The offer ends at midnight on September 10th (BST?), so don’t miss out on the opportunity to search these records from the comfort of your own home. FindMyPast is available for free access at the Family History Library, but some collections are not always available in the library versions.
I know what I’ll be doing for some of this weekend. What will you be doing?
