Received this email thought might be of interest.

Calling all World Cup widows and widowers!


The World Cup is now upon us and we thought it would only be fair to provide some entertainment for all you non-football fans out there:

Whenever England play a match, you'll be able to access all our records for free!*

What you need to know about this fantastic offer:

* When England play, you don't pay: 30 minutes before each England game kicks off, all the records on findmypast.co.uk will be free to view for 3 hours

* You can view our original images and transcriptions of all our records for free including birth, marriage and death records 1538-2006, census records including the 1911 census and our Chelsea Pensioners British Army Service Records 1760-1913 - to name just a few

* Normally you would need a subscription or PayAsYouGo credits to view our records - some of which normally cost 30 credits each - so to be able to see them for free is a rare opportunity

* Keep an eye on our blog for a competition to enter during each England match. You'll need to answer all the questions correctly for a chance to win, so make sure you don't miss any. The prize is a goodie bag containing a digital camera, vouchers for a year's Full subscription plus much more



It's simple - just register and start viewing



All you need to do to make use of this unique offer is register on findmypast.co.uk as you'll need to sign in to view the records.

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 clear advice on how to use 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.

Pass this email on to friends, family or anyone else you think might want to make the most of our free family history records.

Happy researching!

The findmypast.co.uk team

*All records available using our Full subscription (including the 1911 Census) will be free: Living Relatives searches and Memorial scrolls are not included.

Do I have time to make use of it? Doubtful. Got 10 coming for bbq tonight so have to shop and prep.
Would it be very ignorant of me to have my laptop on my knee while everyone is here?

Oh it's gone off----the free search facility----it's asking for subs again----will see what happens tonight, I suppose the last couple of hours were a bonus.

Could it be whenever there is a game on now? There was another match earlier apparently

It was originally meant to be when England played----and the way they are playing tonight it isn't going to last long.

Didn't get chance to go online. Oh well. Do they play again? I bet it is when we are travelling home!

Wednesday afternoon I think---if you can call it playing after what they were doing last night.

thought you all might like to know just been reading the BLOG page on find my past as I want to use the free service on wed. You get 90mins free from 9am wed to 9am thurs and the time starts from when you log in. So you cant do 30 mins in morning then 60 mins in evening it is all in one session thats how I think it works - to find the blog info it is on home page of find my past right at the bottom

I was reading on the Lostcousins newsletter that the site was really slow on the first match because of the response. They have done it this way to give people all around the world the chance to benefit with the added bonus of not slowing it down - hopefully!
Maybe, if I am up early enough, I'll be able to grab an hour before we leave.

Having finally made use of the football offer on Findmypast, I'm glad I didn't take out a subscription with them. They have some interesting records that are not available elsewhere (yet?) but none of my lot appear to be on them unfortunately.
