Free access to all* records on FindMyPast this weekend

Marking D-Day's 80th Anniversary, FindMyPast has opened up nearly all* of its database to free access from now until 10am (GMT) on Monday 10 June.

The free access includes billions of historical records, huge numbers of more recent Electoral Registers, plus the entire British Newspaper Archive. The latter holds just under 80million pages of digitised newsprint including a collection of 266 titles from the island of Ireland.

*The only exclusions are the 1921 Census of England & Wales collection and FMP's Tree Search.

Although you will need to log-in (or register, if you have not done so previously) you will NOT be required to provide payment information. If you don't have a FindMyPast account, all you'll be asked for is your email address, your choice of password and your name. That's it. It's a speedy process, and then you can get stuck into the database straightaway.

If you've not previously had a subscription or haven't had one for some time, this weekend provides you with a great opportunity to find out what FindMyPast can offer your family history research. Don't miss it!
