The following announcement was written by the folks at Findmypast:
In celebration of International Women’s Day, this Findmypast Friday marks the release of over 9,500 fascinating UK military records that illustrate the various roles played by woman during the First World War. Other additions include over 65,000 British Civil Service records and over 285,000 Australian Immigration records. We are also giving everyone unlimited free access to billions of records and newspaper pages from all over the world until midday on Monday, March 9th (GMT). and will be hosting a webinar on searching for women in their historical records at 10 am EST on Sunday 8th March. We have also created a new ‘Getting Started’ video to help everyone make the most of the free weekend. It’s not only new users who will be able to take advantage as those with current Findmypast Local subscriptions (with an active Britain, Ireland, US & Canada or Australia & New Zealand subscription) will be able to access Findmypast’s historical World records during the free access weekend, and those with active World subscriptions will have an additional three days added on to their subscription.
