I have been a subscriber and used Findmypast in my research since the earliest days of them being online.
My father was born in England in 1940, with most of his family still resident there, so their English records have been fantastic. Along with so many Australians I have Irish ancestry and the increasing amount of Irish records has been wonderful.
If you have Irish research you need Findmypast! Their increasing Irish related collections help research the Irish Diaspora, with the Catholic parish registers from the USA, England helping find the emigrating cousins, the Irish Newspaper collection keeps getting better, giving news and Irish life. Findmypast’s Irish archival collections help as census substitutes
Their Australian site launched in 2010 with 35 million records which has only increased since then. I am fifth generation Australian on my mother’s side so again Findmypast has been invaluable in my Australian research and remains one of my favourite subscription sites. I also subscribe to the British Newspaper Archive. I have always loved the records and aids for my research and have often presented on Findmypast.
I am pleased to announce that I am part of the Findmypast Global Ambassador Program.
As part of that program Findmypast grants me an Australian Pro subscription.
Now I can’t get everyone a subscription but Findmypast has agreed to let new subscribers have a 20% discount on the Australian Pro subscription using this code FOFMPHS21
