To celebrate Remembrance Weekend, FindMyPast is offering free access to most of their records from noon (GMT) on Friday, 7 November to 11:59am on Monday, 10 November.
Use the time to explore their collections of UK parish records, historical newspaper pages, military records and passenger lists.
In the past, I've found that the military records included East India Company military records from the 1800s.
You'll need to register and log in.
In some respects, FindMyPast is easier to search than Ancestry so give the FindMyPast Free Weekend a whirl and add a comment below if you find something interesting.
