Not if you live in South Africa. And you are a pensioner, unfortunately. 
The exchange rate kills us here!

Does anyone know if there are free credits for Findmypast, then? I had these free ones years ago to long to remember which year  :)

To view and download a marriage record will cost 6 credits on SP

Copy of a marriage certificate will be about 15 GBP including postage

What marriage record are you looking for? Some kind person with spare credits may look it up for you.

FindMyPast is not giving free credits either.

The record is certainly on SP, but it will not show you much more info.

Maybe they are thinking about those of us who have subscriptions to them and get fed up with them giving out freebies with no recompense to us  ;D   ;D

F M P does give free access sometimes.
