Does this include service men and women who were not from the UK but fought for Britain?

that's what I want to find out as well!
Or may have been when the the French President phoned Churchill and and said we have lost
No its great they escaped of course. What isn't great is the sheer embarrassment of their total collapse when faced with a superior force. Keep fishing internet tough guy.

That's great. I have used Ancestry for my family tree which is now quite extensive, but don't want to pay for another annual subscription. I have also used FreeBMD, Family Search.org and find a grave for research which are all free.
INTERESTING!, were your freebie any good/as good then?, or ..... thanx. :-)
Hi there. I did have an annual membership of Ancestry to build the family tree. I have then used free websites such as FreeBMD, Family Search and Find a Grave to add to it and also when Ancestry is free. Also i tried out FindmyPast as a free month trial. It is useful to use several sites as the searches are slightly different or they have some different archives e.g. Findmypast has details of 1939 pre war census and newspaper archives. The totally free websites probably provide less detail and searching can be more clunky but sometimes throw up details you don't expect, and they are free!!

What free access!!
Each time I try to open a document I get the "Start a free Trial" request. Anyone else having the same problem?
Yes. It was ok yesterday, but I'm getting the "Start free trial" thing this morning.
Just phoned Ancestry....free access is working but only gives access to records and hints about records. Doesn't give access to hints about pubic ancestry member trees....which is where I was having the problem. Hope this helps...

Free access to records from 18th to 20th February, sounds like a bargain, But what if my great grandad was born outside these dates - say 24th June, do I have to pay?
Dah you can research anything in these
dates not just 18th-20th Feb.

I'm sorry, but you fell for what was suppose to be passing as humour!
If you look around (Google is your friend) you can get free access to http://www.ancestrylibrary.com (the version they use in the libraries) - quite a few libraries in the USA & Australia list their log in details on their websites.
I seem to be locked out as normal even though I'm logged in.

Offer closed on 27th January
its a good offer. you really need to have a few months to dig into the records, especially if you haven't got much to go on to start with. I had a membership a couple of years ago for 6 months (back when you could buy a box with software and free 6 months membership). I've traced some ancestors reliably back to 1840 or so, some quite boring (farmers etc, not much to find there), but others have interesting stories. so I'd say its definitely worth it if you can put the time and effort in and you're interested.
This is hilarious. 4 months premium access for 20 quid and it's freezing cold! Perhaps I should have posted the 14 quid a month offer!
To get the offer you just have to complete the free 2 week trial.
And as for the effectiveness of Ancestry.co.uk, I have got back to 1700 and I've only been doing it for a fortnight. And I have every document available as evidence. I've discovered 4 relatives who served in WW1, 3 of whom died at the front and even a relative who was transported to Oz.
Just imagine how long that would have taken if I'd had to rely on traditional methods!

Wouldn't you just need it for 1 day though ?
Search your history, save and print it, cancel membership.
You may want to sign up here. http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-university-backed-course-researching-your-family-tree-2596710
Ancestry will not give you your tree, it may give you a tool to build one but you still need to prove every branch otherwise you will go off on the wrong track. Years and years of work if you want a true history of your family.
Agree with this. Originally signed up thinking they would have all the info. Instead, it shows you ways to find the info yourselves. Basically, you do it all yourself, and can do it the same way without Ancestry from public files/records/google.

Ancestry does not give you your tree but it allows you to see public trees and go far enough and someone else is likely to have researched some of your ancestors - so you get very useful hints. You will not get the same things from public records - a few times you'll get more but mostly a hell of a lot less unless you want to travel to different parts of the country and spend ten times as long and a lot more money.

glad i checked here saved me a few quid thanks so much
Is Ancestry.co.uk any good? Answer - yes. So is Findmypast. Together the best way to do it. Many free sites give lots of detail (e.g. FamilySearch) but to do it seriously, viewing original images rather than transcriptions is better. Gives more information. Local libraries will have the documents for their own areas, so looking for relatives from other areas is difficult. However - many libraries have free access to websites where you can download as much info as you want. I know for certain Manchester, Birmingham and Cheshire East give access to Ancestry

What's the TCB discount please?

When I did it 2 days ago, it was 13%.
What's the TCB discount please?
I've used Ancestry for over 12 months and have bought two of the AncestryDNA kits for willing family members. Both of the tests identified many 'xth cousins' who turned out were definitely related to us and shared great grandfathers, etc. The ethnicity estimator is interesting but it's not worth getting the kit just for that. I'd recommend getting this only if you're already researching your family tree (or are planning on doing so) through Ancestry.

Anyway, £69 including postage is cheaper than any other deal I've seen for it. The best I've seen in the last year or so was £79 (free postage). Plus TBC and Quidco do cashback on top of it.

Entirely a different artticle about something else. These have never claimed to see if you're related to Richard III, etc. However, they will give accurate results if you want to find out 1st-4th cousins.

A more accurate analysis is on the ISOGG website:
http://isogg.org/wiki/Autosomal_DNA_statistics

Scroll down to the percentages. I have located people's parents through this, they were adopted and had no idea of who their parents were. You cannot put a price on that.

EDIT: if you have questions, go to the ISOGG Facebook group and ask questions https://www.facebook.com/groups/isogg/ A lot of very knowledgeable people there.

Nice one OP, hope to find info on my grandfather who fought with the British in WW2, like tens of thousands of other Sikh soldiers..
Currently taking advantage of the 4 months for £20 deal, which is proving very valuable, so I don't need this but if anyone is tempted please, for the love of god, quadruple check everything you put in your public trees, and octople check everything other people have done. There's very few trees I've found that aren't littered with errors, some blatent. Unless one of my ancestors did marry his own daughter and sire himself, in which case I'll take it back.

Findmypast.co.uk also have a similar military offer, FWIW.
This is England and Wales only, not UK. Please amend the description.

Would this have World War 2 records as well?
The records are scanty and few for WW2, so I wouldn't pay subscription for this, as I was disappointed finding just one record, I read on their web site (Ancestry) this subsequently, user may be disappointed to find the limited availability of equivalent service records for World War II. The reason being that the records of Britain’s Army, Navy and Air Force are still classified documents held by the Ministry of Defence.

In case anyone wasn't aware, most libraries in the UK will have access to Ancestry.co.uk which you can use free of charge. There are some limitations, but if you just want to do a few basic searches, may be worth you taking a look.
Most will need additional free access to Ancestry.com.au to get their family tree up to date.

Won't be long though until you can get your whole genome sequenced for 99 quid at this rate. It's about a 1000 dollars at the moment.
Didn't notice this bit,

Price excludes shipping costs or applicable taxes. Surely that price includes VAT and the minimal shipping required.

I think you are confused between public records and private personal data. Public records have always been available to the public including poll registers, deaths, births and marriages. Moreover the latter records you should know these have always been available for inspection. Also visit the national archives blah blah.

Hi, I'm new to the site. Can you sign up for free without having to roll in to a paid subscription after 14 days? I couldn't work out how.
Thanks
They seemed to have made it more hidden to join without free trail than when I used it at Easter.
Try this:
from homepage click tab that says ' SIGN IN '
When boxes drop down leave username and password blank and click ' SIGN IN ' button
This will take you to a welcome to ancestry page that says ' invalid credentials '
on the right underneath ' not a member of ancestry? ' click the line ' sign up now for free '
Then enter name, email and create a password, accept t's & c's and click CONTINUE, you will then be logged in
it will ask you if you want to start a free trail repeatedly later on but at least you will have a username (email) and password and can start to search for free this weekend and create free family trees without having to enter your card details
hope this helps ☺

Thank you. That worked perfectly.

Thank you, I have always wanted to find out more. Found it difficult to find other people as all you get in birth index is mother's maiden name so haven't been able to get any further than grandparents, which I mostly knew anyway.



Depending on when they were born you can use the census records to identify your grandparents when they were children, through which you can see their siblings and parents. This can sometimes be a useful lead for your research.



Thank you, I did find a lot of info from the census pages in the end, found 5 different records that had been entered into the database wrong thanks to tiny jumbled up writing which slowed me down.

Trouble was we didn't know the first names of what would have been my great grandparents, I ended up having to find my grandads cousin whose first and last name my mum remembered, so I ended up having to go up to their parents census then work my way through the list of daughters names, got there in the end!

This has been a great freebie, after a slow start I have now managed to find out my great grandparents names, where they were born and lived, their occupation, parents and sibling names, and when one of them passed away, even found out that my late grandfather was named after who would have been his uncle who was killed in WW1 with the unusual middle name of Walford, and this was long before EastEnders

Brill! Tho most of ancestors are Scottish, there are a few in England and Wales, so off to trace now. Mega thanks, irregs
So not UK then.

Yes for England and Wales this is a good resource, but for the rest of the UK it is a bit lacking (though generally Scottish records are rather difficult to obtain). The site does claim it's a free "UK" weekend - and for free one really can't complain too much I suppose.

sites a bit rubbish, I entered all that i know as far my grand parents and all it found was pretty much useless info I already knew or other peoples records.
