Find My Past is having a free unlimited access weekend from 7 a.m. EST January 22 (today) until 7 a.m. EST January 25. Over 8 billion records are available for everyone to search for free.
This is a great opportunity to investigate what the Find My Past website has to offer to help you with your research.
There are two caveats however to the unlimited free access. The recently released 1939 Register is not included in the access and pay as you go credits will be required to unlock 1939 Register household records. Also, free access is subject to Find My Past's fair use policy so each account may view a maximum of 1,000 records per day. That's a lot of documents. We think the majority of the users will not come near that maximum.
Current Find My Past subscribers will be comped. Current Local Access subscribers will receive World Access during the weekend while current World Access subscribers will receive three days added to their accounts.
As usual, Find My Past has created dedicated webpages for the free access weekend at its United States and Canada site, United Kingdom site, Australia and New Zealand site and its Ireland site. so head there to start. More than likely you will need to have a login to participate, the page should tell you what is needed once the free access time period has begun.
So stay warm this weekend -- Stay inside to research your family history and perhaps enjoy some ancestral-themed meals or snacks while you are researching.
*For those using touchpads or touchscreens, get your fingers ready too.
See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
