With the next England match just around the corner, we’re 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 don’t 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 intofindmypast.co.uk between the times stated above. If you’re 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 atfindmypast.co.uk at a time that suits you. We’ve 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.
Visit our World Cup page for more information. If you need a helping hand with your research, take a look at our video tutorials or our Getting Started page which provide advice and tips about using our records.
We'd love to hear about any discoveries you make while our records are free to view - post anything you'd like to share with us and our readers on our Facebook page.
Please pass this on to friends, family or anyone else you think might want to make the most of our free family history records.
