Ancestry makes UK collection (+ some Irish records) free until 8 May

Ancestry UK is opening up its UK collection to free access. The record sets available includes several – particularly those relating to Irish men and women who served in the British Army – that will be useful to researchers with family connections to Ireland.

There are also a further 36 collections identified in their titles with the terms 'Ireland', 'Irish' and 'UK & Ireland' worth checking out.

The free access doors are now open and will remain so until Monday 8 May. If you don't already have one, you'll need to register for a free account. No financial information is requested.
