RETRACTION: offers free access to Drouin Collection

Please disregard the post about offering free access to their Drouin collection in honour of June 24th. I still wish everyone a very Happy Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day or La Fête nationale and hope you all have a chance to laissez les bon temps roulez!

Click here to read's press releases, both current and historical. My sincere apologies for any confusion!

Findmypast is free during every England World Cup match!

I know what you're thinking: FindMyPast isn't Canadian content! Why are you posting this special offer on your blog?

I firmly believe that unless you're a member of the First Nations, your ancestors had to come to Canada from somewhere. One of those "wheres" could possibly be England, and FindMyPast has a lot to offer you as a researcher.

So, if you're not a big fan of soccer (football) or you're able to multitask while watching England and its competitor, the majority of English records held at FindMyPast are free! You can register in advance and then just head over to the site to search starting 30 minutes before the game starts for three hours.

To register and learn more, head on over to FindMyPast. To check out when England plays at the FIFA World Cup, click here.
