To celebrate the addition of more than 300,000 new records to their Royal Household staff collection, FindMyPast are offering 40 free credits for their online databases. That’s enough to get you 4 staff records, 8 birth, marriage and death records, or 2 merchant navy seamen.
The Royal Household staff collection covers most staff employed at royal residences across the UK as far back as the 16th century and they include the reigns of King Charles I, Queen Victoria and King George V.
As well as census records, births, marriages and deaths, records about the armed forces, education, employment, migration and travel, FindMyPast also has criminal records and newspapers.
You'll need to be quick to get your credits - the offer ends at midnight on Sunday 29 September and you’ll need to register and enter the offer code 'YOURMAJESTY' too but you get 30 days in which to use the credits.

I don’t think any of my ancestors were employed by the royal family, so
if any of yours were, please let me know what you found out.
