If you're not football mad, there is something else to do during the World Cup – make it your goal to research your family history.
You can view all the records on findmypast for free during every England World Cup match – all you need to do is register.
Under this free offer, you can view the census records from 1841-1911, parish records for baptisms, marriages and burials 1538 onwards, military records covering World War I and World War II, and migration records. Living Relatives searches and Memorial scrolls are not included.
How it works:
When England play, you don't pay!
- 30 minutes before kick-off we'll stop charging for 3 hours, which should give you plenty of time to explore what we have to offer.
- To get ready, make sure you've registered as you'll need to sign in to view the records. If you need help, take a look at our handy Getting Started guide and our video tutorials.
Normally a twelve month subscription can cost from £59.95 to £149.90 depending on the access levels subscribed to. You can read more at http://www.findmypast.co.uk/world-cup.jsp
