The official announcement hasn't been made yet, but a beta version of findmypast.com's new International Records web site is now online and available. The site presently includes international records from England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and Wales with other countries expected in the future.
The new web site is available with an introductory offer for the World Subscription of $4.95/month (U.S. funds) instead of the normal $20.83/month. It is limited to a set number of early subscribers while the site is in beta but will be opened to everyone once the site completes the beta test period.
findmypast is also continuously expanding the company's record collections. Soon, articles from the British Newspaper Archives will be added to the world subscription including English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh newspapers dating back to the 1700s. Other new US and overseas collections, some unique to findmypast.com, are being secured and will be announced as they go live online.
The official launch and the official announcement are expected to be available later this month.
The new International records web site is available at findmypast.com while the previous U.K. version remains available at findmypast.co.uk. Notice the difference in endings: ".com" versus ".co.uk".
