Irish genealogy - Special offers, discounts and deals



Irish genealogy special offers come in all shapes and sizes and are announced to coincide with traditional festivals (St Patrick's Day/Christmas, for example) and at steady intervals throughout the year.

This page of Irish Genealogy Toolkit is updated regularly, so be sure to bookmark it if you want to be sure of picking up a bargain and keeping the cost of your ancestral search under control.

Here are the current* Irish genealogy special offers and discounts:

*last update 18 September 2017



Save US$30 on 12-month subscription to Fold3

Fold3, Ancestry's dedicated military records sister site is offering a $30 discount on new 12-month subscriptions purchased before the end of the month.

The site holds more than 487million records, many of them in military collections you won't find elsewhere online.

Most come from the US and UK National Archives, and contain not only images of original military documents but also stories, photos and personal documents of the men and women who served in the military.

Among the gems awaiting researchers with Irish-born ancestors are the US Civil War Service records and Widows Pensions collection; World War II draft cards, photos and records; and the British Army WW1 Service Records, War Diaries and ROyal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner records.

In addition to Military records, the site provides access to city directories, newspapers, naturalisation records, and the 1860–1930 US Censuses.

The current offer reduces the annual subscription from US$79.95 to US$49.95 and is available only to new Fold3 subscribers (ie not to renewing subscribers). It will end on 30 September at 11:59pm MDT.





Save money on Living DNA tests

Living DNA, the UK-based company which arrived on the genetic genealogy scene last year and has quickly won many admirers, is offering discounts on its dna testing kit.

The Living DNA test is a 3-in-1 test that not only covers your family ancestry and your motherline, it also, if the tester is male, explores the fatherline.

The test also sets out your dna mix across 80 world regions, including 21 in Britain and Ireland.

The discounts on offer vary depending on where you live and the currency you want to use, as follows:



Shipping/tax costs are additional. See terms and conditions.

I'm not sure when this special offer expires - the website says only 'limited time offer' - so I'd recommend you make your purchases quickly if you want to take advantage of the discounts while they're available.

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.
