Celebrate Family History Month with a special offer from Findmypast

·         $5 for a one month World subscription for the whole month

·         Follow us on social media to share our daily family history discoveries, and share your own using the hashtag #FMPShowandTell

2014 has already been a record breaking year at Findmypast, and we’re ready to celebrate! Family History Month 2014 is an opportunity for us to share our amazing collection of records, significant moments in history, and the characters we’ve discovered along the way.

The ground breaking projects we’ve launched in 2014 have added millions of names to our database. 100in100 gave us 100 record sets in 100 days, and a total of 38,400,460 new worldwide records. Our digitization effort with the Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library to put thePERiodical Source Index, or PERSI, online for the first time is well under way with over 23,000 images already available. Our England and Wales National School Admission Registers and Log-books was a collaborative project working with 25 archives and schools, and included more than 2.5 million historical records.

We’re excited to share all of this, and more, with the family history community. Every day in October, we’ll be sharing the stories we find throughout history to recognize Family History Month, reminiscent of the “show and tell” of our school days. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates, using the hashtag #FMPShowandTell. Share your own discoveries with us, and watch for weekly highlights on our blog; you never know who we might find.

Join the celebration! For the month of October, we will be offering 30 days of our World subscription for just $5.00 using promotional code USFHM14. Simply enter the code at checkout to explore all of our records and take your own research further during Family History Month.
