Ancestry IE and UK free until 26 December
This offer has now expired
While most family history databases and suppliers tend to concentrate their promotions on the post-Christmas to New Year period, Ancestry has decided to offer a Christmas Eve to St Stephen's Day freebie.

There's free access to Ancestry's Ireland and UK collections from now until 23:59 pm GMT on 26 December 2014 (all promotions say 'UK' collection, but I've checked the list of datasets available and found that all the Irish ones are included).

To take advantage of the free access offer, you need to register with your name and email address. You'll be sent an automatically generated user name and password to allow you access to the billion or so records held in these collections.
