The most basic tier is ‘Starter’, aimed at family history beginners. It costs £24.99 for a three-month subscription or £79.99 for a 12-month subscription.

The only records the Starter subscription gives you access to are civil registers of birth, marriage and death records in Britain and Ireland and the British and Irish censuses.

The second tier is ‘Plus’, which costs £35.99 for three months or £119.99 for 12 months.

As well as the records available in the Starter tier, the Plus tier covers the 1939 Register; British and Irish parish records, wills, electoral registers and education, occupation and travel records, as well as special Irish records and military records.

The final tier, ‘Pro’, costs £46.99 for three months or £159.99 for 12 months and offers access to all the records on Findmypast, covering countries including America, Canada and Australia.

It is also the only subscription tier which covers Findmypast’s large historic newspapers collection, including its partnership with the British Newspaper Archive.


All three tiers also allow you to create your family tree on Findmypast, receive hints from other trees and message other users with whom you have shared ancestors.
