Origins offers 20% off all subscriptions

To mark the end of the London 2012 Olympics (and the fact we can now get away from the TV and back to our genealogy research), Origins is offering a 20% discount on all its subscriptions until 19 August.

Origins offers both British and Irish subscription packages ranging from a 72-hour access to monthly and annual recurring subscriptions.

To take advantage of the offer, simply enter the promotional code olympicend2012 on the SignUp or Checkout pages once you have chosen your subscription.

This offer is also extended to Origins's sister site, Burke's Peerage, where Burke's Landed Gentry Irish Families is now available to view online.

This book lists land-owning families of Ireland, many of which record generations stretching back many centuries.

Interestingly, many of the families recorded during the first half of the 20th Century were "formerly of", indicating they no longer held the lands to which the record referred.
