Ancestry UK has Free Access to Historical Records Until 5 April #records

Jan Meisels Allen





For our friends in the UK, Ancestry UK  has free access through 5 April 11:59PM British time (use time zone converter to see what time it is in your part of the world) Registration is required with name, email address and they will send you a password if you don’t already have on for Ancestry UK.  Click in the green box where it says Explore Now.  When you do that it opens to where you can place the name of the person you are researching and a page that says Find Out How to Get Started with a video.


No credit card information is requested. This is not the 14-day free trial which does require your credit card information.


If you try to access the historical data after the free access period you will be invited to subscribe. You will also be invited to subscribe if you try to access records not included in the free access record collections.


I have no affiliation with Ancestry and am sharing this information solely for the information of the readers.
