Free Access Weekend at

The weekly article on Friday instead of Sunday?  What’s happening?

Just wanted you to know that you can have free access to FindMyPast for the weekend starting at midnight London time – which is about 5 pm Friday our time – but then we change our clocks on Sunday morning (Spring forward and lose an hour’s sleep!) and I am not sure the British change their clocks this weekend? – and it goes on until noon Monday London time.

I’m told this includes newspaper articles as well as their extensive collection of British, Irish, American, Canadian, and Australasian!  Even if you already have an account with FindMyPast you may not have access to all of this!

I am grateful to Peter Calver at for this information.  You can get the full details and some very helpful tips on using FindMyPast in his newsletter at

Also if you have British ancestry you will be very interested in learning about LostCousins!

Thank you Peter
