To mark the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, and for one day only, Ancestry is giving free access to its UK parish and probate collection.
While a small number of Irish record sets are included in this free access collection, the majority are from England, Wales & Scotland and could be an opportunity to locate missing Irish ancestors or to check an important collection for clues to place of origin.
You can see a list of the specific record sets available here.
The free access runs until 11:59 GMT tonight. As far as I can tell, you don't even need to register.
