Take advantage of these offers before they expire

This is a just a reminder of a few rather handy and money-saving offers that are running out shortly.

FindMyPast's new US Marriage records
Earlier this month, FindMyPast launched the first 33 million records of a new collection of US marriage records. The new collection covers 360 years of marriages from 1650-2010 and will stretch to at least 100million records when all of them have been digitised and uploaded to the database.

With more than 60% of the new collection never online before, this is certainly a record set to check out, and if you're quick, you can do so without a subscription. FindMyPast launched the collection with free access, but this will expire tonight. You need only to register. You don't need to sign up for a free trial or provide financial details. See my original blogpost for details and links.

Tracing your Irish Ancestors Conferences – Early Bird Offer
The Ulster Historical Foundation (UHF) will be running two week-long conferences this year – one in June, one in September – both of them offering family history assistance from experts, guided research in Dublin and Belfast repositories and escorted heritage tours and sightseeing.

Although places at these popular conferences are filling up, the UHF is holding it's Early Bird offer until the very end of this month (29 February). This reduces the cost of the conference to £699 ($999 approx.) per person, a saving of £50. See full details of the Summer Conference, or the Autumn Conference.

FindMyPast 12-month World subscription
With the cost of a FindMyPast subscription increasing by 20% tomorrow, you'll kick yourself if you don't take advantage of the pre-hike 10% discount on the annual World package. You can see the saving amounts below. You've got until 23:59 GMT tonight to sign-up before the new rates apply.
