The new records date back to pre-Famine Ireland and include land, wills, religion and merchant shipping records; totalling some 3million records, they will be available free of charge, permanently, on both the National Archives of Ireland's Genealogy website and FindMyPast.
FindMyPast's free access weekend is not restricted to the new records, however. The full Ireland collection will be accessible without charge from 8am today until 11:59pm on Sunday 18 September via FindMyPast IE, UK and AU.com. It isn't available via the US (.com) site, but that doesn't stop North Americans registering with one of the sister sites.
You don't need to take out a subscription. All you need is a registered account to access the collection. If you don't already have one, it won't take you long to sort one out, and you don't have to provide any financial information. In fact, the only details requested are your name, country of residence and your email address. You choose a password, and that's it... start searching.
