Find my past free access

Postby paulr1949 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 2:43 pm

I've just had an email stating that access to FMP will be free from 1200 tomorrow, 8 November until 1200 Monday 11 November. It doesn't include newspapers or periodicals. The email doesn't say if this is worldwide or just for findmypast.co.uk

Nor does it include electoral registers or company directors (which can be found on the Companies House website anyway).

I noticed whilst using the free access to look at some Australian, US and Canadian records that, certainly using the "hints" within Family Historian, that FMP had rather sneakily turned off the "download" feature for images so you couldn't save them for later reference. All the records I wanted to check were transcriptions anyway, so a screengrab was sufficient, and I had limited time to look at them anyway over the weekend.
The facility is back now.
