FindMyPast free trial and 15% discount continues

Just in case you thought that the offer had ended, this is a timely reminder that FindMyPast Ireland is still offering two whole weeks of family tree research absolutely free with a 14-day free trial to any of its collections.

There‘s no catch and there are no hidden costs; it really is that simple. You just get 14 days of for free.

Choose your collection and start searching:
  • World Collection – 1.4 billion records from across the globe
  • Britain & Ireland Collection – 680 million records from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland
  • Ireland Collection – 40 million Irish family history records
It's worth noting that the millions of pages of historical newspapers were added last week to the Britain & Ireland (and by extension, the Worldwide) collection. These papers span the period 1710 to 1950 and more than 200 titles are included. At the current time, the only Irish offer that I can see is the Freeman's Journal; it isn't classed as an Irish paper but it carries a lot of Irish news. All new additions to the British Newspaper Archive (a joint venture between the British Library and Brightsolid, the parent of findmypast) will automatically join the findmypast line up in future. This is a hugely valuable addition to the Britain collection.

For good measure, if you take the free 14-day trial and then decide to subscribe to either the Worldwide or the Britain & Ireland collection (not the Ireland-only collection), there's a 15% discount available. This brings the price of subscriptions down as follows:

World subscription after free trial: €152.96 for 12 months/€96.01 for 6 months.
Britain & Ireland subscription after free trial: €127.46 for 12 months/€80.71 for 6 months.
