Free access to FindMyPast during England’s World Cup games

FindMyPast.co.uk has been celebrating the World Cup (soccer, or football as it’s known in most of the rest of the world) by offering free access for 90 minutes while England is playing.

For the first game the access while while they were actually playing, which was 4:40am for us here in eastern Australia.

For the next game they are allowing you to choose your time. 90 minutes within a 24 hour period is a good deal!

All records available in a Full Subscription will be available, including the 1911 Census.

ScotlandsPeople allows expired credits to be reactivated

ScotlandsPeople, the site that gives us Scottish parish registers, civil registrations, wills and more, works on a pay-per-view system where credits expire after 90 days. If you buy some more after the old ones have expired the old ones are reactivated, so you don’t lose them completely.

They have issued an announcement to the effect that you can reactivate old credits on a one-time only basis without buying new ones.

ScotlandsPeople would like to offer all customers who have existing credits in their account the opportunity to re-activate and use the credits at no cost through the use of a voucher code. We are doing this to allow customers who have expired credits to take the opportunity to use these without making a purchase.

All customers who have existing credits can now use the free voucher code SCOTLANDSPEOPLE which will re-set the credit expiry to 90 days in their account. Customers may use this voucher any time until 1.00 p.m. on Thursday 17th June, 2010. The voucher may only be used once in each account.For information on how to use the voucher code, click here.

It’s quite easy. Just log in, click on the Need More link, and enter the voucher code SCOTLANDSPEOPLE. Your credits will now expire in 2160 hours, and no money will have changed hands.

They have made this offer available until 17 June 2010, so do it now before you forget!
