Free weekend access to Ancestry's Irish & UK collection

Free access runs to Monday 26 August
I'm a bit late to the party with this one (apologies, I've only just seen the tweet): AncestryUK is offering free access to all its Irish and UK records this weekend.

The free access includes the full and wide range of Ancestry's Irish and UK collection: Parish, Civil BMDs, Census, Court, Military, Occupation, Migration and travel, Poor Law records, plus Directories, photographs, maps, census substitutes and miscellaneous record sets. You can see the detailed and impressive list here.

You'll need a registered account to take advantage of the free access. If you don't already have one, the process is very straightforward and fast, and you don't have to provide any more than your name and address.

The free access will run until 23:59 GMT on Monday 26 August.
