Ancestry.co.uk - three days of free access 5, 6, 7 June 2015

14
Found 3rd Jun 2015
Just received an email advising of another free weekend on Ancestry.co.uk. As usual you'll need to have an account (free to set up) that will let you "Search more than 1 billion UK records, from as early as the Tudors through to the Industrial Revolution".

Also don't forget freebmd.org.uk and frecen.org.uk - both brilliant sites for finding family history records that are always free!

*Access to the records in the featured collections will be free from 5 June at 00:01 until 7 June, 2015 at 23:59 GMT. After the free access period ends, you will only be able to view the records in the featured collections using an Ancestry.co.uk paid membership.

also freereg.org.uk for UK parish registers and familysearch.org whos reasons for compiling data you may not agree with but who do have an awful lot of it which they give free access to.

TBH a lot of what I found on ancestry last time they did this was already freely available but it is nice to see the original census pages which they have scans of rather than just a database entry.

Yay!

its just a matter of searching with a much info as possible for the furthest person back you know, I found I got the most info from the census, as they gives you loss of info including age, place of birth and sometimes occupation and exact address, also parents, children or siblings in the house, but the last census records are from 1911. Also parish records tend to have more info, such as parents names on a marriage record which helped me to find more. Hope this helps ☺

Cheers

Thanks for tips..
Think I will struggle on my dads side as I've not seen him since I was 6 and my mums passed away and I never got told much information about him.
I'll give it another shot though for free

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

Yeah from what I remember when you sign up it asks you if you want premium just select no.

Thank you, didn't know about the other free sites either.

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 ☺
