I'm hoping this may be of interest to HUKD members who have been researching their family history. Access to the 1991 Census is usually by payment-only, but for 90 minutes tomorrow (Friday) you can have access free of charge. You do need to register by midnight tonight though. However, I think they plan to repeat this free access on each day that England play a World Cup match.
I didn't put this under Freebies because you need to register your details to take up the offer - ops will move it if its in the wrong place. Direct link to further details:http://blog.findmypast.co.uk/
With the next England match just around the corner, were warming up to provide further entertainment for any non-football fans in the form of our second World Cup widows offer:
90 minutes free access to findmypast.co.uk at a time of your choice on the day that England play when England play, you still dont pay!*
How to get free access
Make sure you are registered on the website before midnight (UK time) on the day before the match. If you have already registered, you do not need to do this again.
Return to findmypast.co.uk at a time of your choosing between 9am (UK time) on the day of the match and 9am (UK time) the day afterwards.
Once you have signed in, you will have 90 minutes to search and view the records for free.
The free 90 minutes are available as a continuous period and will begin the moment you sign into findmypast.co.uk between the times stated above. If youre not in the UK, you can convert the UK times above into local time here. A listing of the scheduled England matches is available here.
Our World Cup Widows offer for the second England match is now much more flexible, particularly for those of you based outside of the UK. You are now able to use the records at findmypast.co.uk at a time that suits you. Weve been working hard to improve the speed of the site after the overwhelming popularity of our first offer so that even more customers will be able to benefit from it.
