On March 21, I posted an article about Ancestry.co.uk's offer of free access to online U.K. census records. Apparently, the article created questions. I have now checked with the folks at Ancestry.co.uk and, indeed, you can search and view the record indexes for free this Sunday (Census Day), without signing up for the 14 day free trial.
If you try to search the records before March 27, the web site will take you through to the 14 day free trial page. However, on Sunday, March 27th, you’ll be able to search and view the indexes for free just by registering, which consists of entering your name and email address only. You will NOT be required to sign up for the 14-day free trial on that day.
