I received an e-mail from FindMyPast indicating they are doing a free access this week-end (September 7 – 10, 2018). There are exceptions:
*British, Irish, US and World Newspapers, the PERiodical Source Index and UK Electoral Registers & Companies House Directors 2002-2018 are not included in this free access promotion.
Free access ends on 10 September at 23:59. After this, you can only view records with a valid subscription. Terms and conditions apply.
It’s a U.K. company so the time zone is probably GMT 0 or GMT+1 which is a few hours ahead of those of us in the U.S. I’m 5 or 6 hours behind those time zones and would need to take that into account when determining when free access ends.
FindMyPastDNA is still offering Living DNA kits for $89.00 (regular price $99.00). If you have tested with 23andMe, AncestryDNA, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), or MyHeritageDNA, you can do a free limited transfer with a future option to do a full upgrade for a discount. No word on how much the discount will be or when they will start offering it. If you already have a Living DNA kit, no reason to order one from FindMyPastDNA as they use Living DNA to process the kits.
