MyHeritage offers free access to UK collection until Monday 8 May

MyHeritage has opened up its collection of 1.1billion UK historical records to free access this long weekend. The free period will expire on Monday 8 May (precise time not advised).

The collection holds some 630 record-sets, including birth, marriage, and death indexes, census records, church register transcriptions and some images, wills and probate records, court and prison records, military records, and more.

It spans several centuries of history in England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

If you don't already have an account with MyHeritage, you will need to sign up. This is a free, easy and fast process.

Running alongside this free access period is a discount on MyHeritage DNA test kits. The price of the test has been reduced to £35 with free shipping on two or more kits. For the same price as the kits-only offer, you might prefer to add on 30 days of free access to the full MyHeritage database. Take a look at the two offers here.
