Ancestry's UK & Irish collection is free this weekend
AncestryUK is offering free access to all its Irish and UK records from tonight at midnight (GMT) until Sunday 27 July at 23:59 (GMT). That's a cool 48 hours of access.

Those that don't currently have an account with Ancestry UK can register as a guest to obtain access; registered guests are sent a User Name and Password, and don't have to provide credit card details. Those who have a UK Essentials subscription will automatically be able to search Irish and UK collections that are not included in this subscription package.

The Irish record sets includes Civil Registration Indexes of birth, marriages and deaths, Griffith's Valuation, a collection of Roman Catholic parish registers and many more valuable resources. Find out more about the record sets included in Ancestry's Irish collection.
