    Findmypast is offering a free access weekend to their more than 2.7 billion records ranging from censuses and parish registers to passenger lists and military service records. The free access begins at 04:00AM EDT September 7 until Monday September 10 18:59 BST. To convert your local time use World
    Clock Converter at: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

    As the free access has not yet started at the time of this is being written,
    I could not check it out.

    You are required to register with your name, email address and password. No credit card information is required. Go to: https://www.findmypast.com/family-story/
    And click on register for free access in the upper right hand side.

    British, Irish, US and World Newspapers, the PERiodical Source Index and UK Electoral Registers & Companies House Directors 2002-2018 are not included
    in this free access promotion. If you try to access those records that are
    not included in the free access or try to access the special collections
    being offered before or after the special offer dates you will be directed
    to a page inviting you to subscribe.

    Free access ends on 10 September at 23:59 (BST). After this, you can only
    view records with a valid subscription.

    Findmypast (previously DC Thomson Family History) is the British-owned
    leader in online family history with over 18 million registered users across its family of brands, which include Findmypast, Genes Reunited, the British Newspaper Archive and Twile.

    I have no affiliation with Findmypast and am posting this solely for the information of the reader.
