Fold3 marks 10th anniversary with 40% discount on annual subscription

Fold3, Ancestry's military records specialist site, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a 40% discount on its one-year Premium membership subscription fee.

The discount reduces the annual cost from US$79.95 to US$47.95. It's billed in one payment, but it works out at US$3.99 a month.

Fold3 Premium membership provides access to 485 million records.

The collection includes Revolutionary War Service & Pension records, Confederate Civil War Service records, Union Civil War Service records, Civil War Widows records, War of 1812 War Servive records, Mexican War Service records, World War II records and photos, and much more. From personal experience, I can confirm that Fold3 holds records you won't find anywhere else online, and is stuffed full of Irish emigrants.

The discount offer will expire on Tuesday 31 January at midnight (MST) and is offered only to new Fold3 subscribers and not for renewal of current subs.

If you take up the offer, your subscription will automatically renew at regular list price after the introductory 1-year offer. You can switch off the auto-renew function at any time.







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.
