Findmypast and British Newspaper Archive offers

The Shoestring Genealogist is back with news about three genealogy offers. But you’ll have to be quick!

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) is repeating its one month for £1 special. The usual price for a month’s subscription is £9.95. Go to this page and enter the promotion code SEPT14 to buy a 1 month subscription. But you’ll need to do this before 23.59 GMT on Sunday 28 September.

The Shoestring Genealogist says best foot forward!

Findmypast UK is also offering a one month special, this time for £5 (half the usual £9.95 sub). You’ll have to take up the offer before midnight BST on Tuesday 30 September. It’s worth pointing out that you can access the BNA via FMP, so this could be a worthwhile extra £4 to spend depending on what you want to research.

However Findmypast Australia and New Zealand caps the lot with a $5 for one month World subscription. This is cheaper than the UK deal and has, well, the world according to FMP at your fingertips. The code is SEPT1, but go to this link and you’ll find it’s already applied. I haven’t got an end date. I’d guess it will be 30 September – but better soon than sorry.

Have you heard of any other genealogy offers to share?

Remember to unsubscribe before the month is up if you don’t want your sub to continue at the usual price.

About rebelhand

A Rebel Hand is: about Nicholas Delaney, Irish rebel of 1798, transported as a convict to New South Wales, roadbuilder, innkeeper and farmer. My great-great-great grandfather. Other ancestors transported to Australia, like Sarah Marshall, John Simpson and James Thomas Richards, pop up as well. This blog's also about the historical background to their lives, in England, Ireland, and Australia. My respectable Welsh ancestors sometimes get a look in.
