FindMyPast.com launches Starter subscription with 70% discount
A new 'Starter' subscription
has been launched by FindMyPast.com aimed primarily at beginner family historians in the United States.
The launch offer comes with a huge 70% discount on the 12-month option, reducing its cost from $114.50 to just $34.95. (The monthly option does not attract a discount; it costs $9.95 a month.)
As well as access to FindMyPast's online family tree builder, the Starter subscription includes more than 2.9 billion records including:
- US immigration & travel records: This collection includes records of people leaving the UK between 1890 and 1960, and passenger lists from states including Florida and California
- US birth, marriage and death records: Notable record sets in our Starter Package are CA births and marriages, NY marriages and SC deaths. FindMyPast's comprehensive marriage collection, spanning 360 years, is not included (see Premium)
- US Newspapers: Historic newspapers are a valuable – and often underutilized – resource for family history researchers. They contain family announcements, details about criminal cases, military commendations and much more.
- UK & Irish Censuses: Essential for Americans with Irish or British heritage.
- Access to FMP's free collections of US census records and Irish Parish Catholic Registers.
For comparison, the regular 'full' package, now known as Premium, costs $239.40 for a year or $19.95 for a month, and gives access to more than 8 billion records.
