During this free access time period, you will need to sign-in to either your subscription account or free account.

The simplest way to create a free account is to do a search, click to view a result image and the website will ask you to sign into your account or create a free account.

There are special search pages set up for this free access time period for most of the Find My Past websites --'s search for US and Canada,'s free search for UK, or's free search. You can access all the British and Irish records regardless of country from any of these FindMyPast websites.
