I saw this on FindMyPast this morning – Findmypast is free this Veterans Day Weekend (Exclusions Apply – see link below): https://www.findmypast.com/page/free-access. I was trying to get this out earlier today, but time crept up on me so I am posting it now. Plus, an interesting app popped up and I pushed this notice back again.

9. Free Access & Free Weekends
We may, from time to time, offer a period of free access to Records on the Site (Free Access). Where you hold a current subscription or unused credits we will send you an email to let you know when a Free Access is about to start (Free Access Email).
We may limit Free Access to a weekend (Free Weekend), lasting from 12:00 pm midday (GMT) on the Friday until 11:59 am (GMT) on the Monday or such other time period we decide. To access Records during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend, you will need to be registered and signed in to the Site.
At our discretion, some Records may not be available during Free Access or a Free Weekend (Excluded Records). The Free Access and Free Weekend Emails will provide full detail of how your particular Subscription or Credits are affected during the Free Access or Free Weekend.
If you have purchased Credits to access Records, during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend, your Credits will not be used to access and view Records, except for Excluded Records. Access to Excluded Records will continue to require the use of your Credits.
Pro and World Subscribers will receive an additional three days added on to the end of their current Subscription period, free of charge. This is cumulative so that for every Free Access Period or Free Weekend offered during the applicable Subscription period, three days will be added. If we offer three Free Access periods or Free Weekends during the applicable Subscription period, nine free days will be added to the end of the Subscription period.
Usage limits apply on the number of Records you may access during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend – please see further below (#11).
11. Fair usage.
We have a fair usage limit on the number of Records you may view. Different limits apply depending on whether you are accessing Records for free or on a Subscription, Credit, or Trial basis.
- If you access Records on a Subscription basis, you may access a maximum of 5,000 Records in any calendar month (Month), subject to a maximum of 500 Records in any 24 hour period (Limit). The Limit does not apply where you are accessing Records on a Credit basis as such access is ‘pay as you go’.
- During a Trial, you may access a maximum of 600 Records (Trial Limit).
- During a Free Access period or Free Weekend, you may access a maximum of 200 Records per 24hr period (Free Access Limit). The Free Access Limit will count towards your Limit, if applicable. For example, if you have a Subscription and you access 2,000 Records during Free Access or over a Free Weekend and have not accessed any other Records in that Month, you will only be able to access another 4,600 Records that Month.
If you are viewing Records on a Subscription basis, once the Limit has been reached, you will need to wait for the next month to start, when the Limit is automatically reset. If you are on a Trial or a Free Access period or Free Weekend, you will need to buy a Subscription (or Credits) to view more Records.
There is no carry over permitted of any unused Limit or Free Access Limit from one Month to the next Month. There is no carryover permitted of any unused Trial Limit if you subsequently go on to purchase a Subscription or Credit.
