In conjunction with the Who Do You Think You Are? Live! show going on in London, Ancestry.co.uk is offering free access to the company's U.K. web site this weekend.
This is only for the Ancestry.co.uk site and does not include Ancestry.com or the other Ancestry sites for other countries. I am in a London hotel and found the free access works for me but I am not sure if it works from other countries.
Access to the U.K. records on the site will be free until 23.59 GMT on 23 February 2014. To view these records you will need to register for free with Ancestry.co.uk with your name and email address. The company will then send you a user name and password to access the records. After the free access period ends, you will only be able to view the records in the featured collections using an Ancestry.co.uk paid membership.
You can access the Ancestry.co.uk at no charge this weekend at http://www.ancestry.co.uk/free-access.
