Genealogy Freebies and Discounts

Here are three great offers for family historians.
  1. Ancestry:   Up to and including 8 June 2015 there is free access to Ancestry's UK and Irish records. The search page, which lists all records included in this offer, is http://bit.ly/Ancuki. (Ancestry's first email said the deadline was June 7th, but they later changed that to June 8th.)

  2. FindMyPast for $1:   New customers can get a one-month World subscription to FindMyPast for just $1 or £1 or €1, depending on whether you join via their Australia/NZ, United Kingdom, Ireland or USA site.

    The subscription gives you access to over 2 billion records worldwide (indexes, transcriptions and images of original documents). They include millions of birth, marriage, death and census records; the largest online collection of Irish family history records; more than 10 million British newspaper pages from as long ago as 1710; lots of records for Queensland; and much more. You have until 23:59pm on Tuesday 30 June 2015 to take up this offer. Terms and conditions are on the Web pages. You can un-tick 'auto-renew' on your My Account page.

    Some of the reasons why I like FindMyPast are listed here.

  3. Genealogy seminar in Atherton, Qld:   There is free admission to my talks at Atherton Library on Friday 19 Jun 2015. The topics are 'Not Just the Patient: How Hospital and Asylum Records Tell the Story of a Family' and 'Ancestors who Moved or Vanished'. Get more details or make a booking.
