What is a free access promotion and how does it work?

From time to time, we open up access to all or some of Findmypast completely free of charge to encourage more people to explore their family history. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements about the next free access promotion.

To use Findmypast during a free access period, you simply need to sign up or log in if you've already got an account. Then, log in during the free period and you’ll be able to access records and features that would normally be included in a paid subscription. For more information, including our fair usage policy, read our free access terms and conditions
