FindMyPast's military collections free for one week

To mark Remembrance Day 2020, FindMyPast has opened up its military collection to all family historians, free of charge, until Thursday 12 November. 

Its 105 million military records include records from conflicts as various as the Boer War, Korea and Vietnam wars, the Maori campaigns and the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland, plus, of course, many service and medal collections for WW1 (including some 210,000 Irisfhmen who fought in the British Forces) and WW2.

To reach the free access page, use the following links according to your place of residence:

Free access ends 10am GMT on 12 November.

In addition to this opportunity to explore the collection for free, FindMyPast has launched a new campaign to encourage family historians to discover the stories behind the names etched on war memorials.
