What! The 1939 Register For Free!
« on: Wednesday 20 January 16 15:31 GMT (UK) »
I am now a valued customer of FindMyPast and it seems as though I am about to get unlimited free access to the 1939 register from the middle of February until the expiry of my subscription in the middle of June! Glad I've so far resisted paying for the service, to a single property.

Anyone else get a similar email?

Haven't had the email yet, hope I get it soon.  I've managed to look up a few people with existing credits, but then FindMyPast decided they were going to charge me even though I still have credits left - as well as a subscription, so I stopped searching.

So is mine, but then I did take my sub out in dollars (it was a special offer)

Still i feel sorry for all those who have bought the 1939 register at 6 a go !
