Update – they fixed the date.
I appreciate them posting this early yesterday – FindMyPast Fridays July 5, 2019: FindMyPast Fridays July 5, 2019. The link worked when I added it yesterday although why it’s titled July 8 and not July 5 is beyond me. I will double check later today to make sure the link still works
