Genealogy Discounts and Freebies
When I hear about discounts and freebies for genealogy, I mention them on at least one of these sites (links open in new windows):  (1) this page;  (2) my 'Judy Webster Genealogy' Facebook page;  (3) 'JudyQld' on Twitter.

Current Offers

Take advantage of these specials while they last, and watch for other discounts and freebies to be listed here in the future. Links open in new windows.

  • (NEW)  Save up to 40% on DNA tests for genealogy at Family Tree DNA (including the popular Family Finder test, which both males and females can do). This offer ends on 22 Nov 2018, Pacific Time (which will be 23 Nov in Australia). Family Tree DNA gives you access to tools that other companies don't offer. I especially like their chromosome browser and phased family matching.

  • (NEW)  Ancestry's DNA test is available at a discount price until 20 Nov 2018.

  • (Coming soon)  I've had advance notice of other new offers to be announced this month, but as yet I'm sworn to secrecy. I'll also be offering discounts on some of my own research/copying services. Watch this page!


  • New users can get a 14 day free trial at Findmypast.

  • Family Group Sheet:  You are welcome to download (free) the customised Family Group Sheet that I designed for my own use. It includes features that most group sheets don't have. No matter what filing system you use, I strongly advise you to write all birth, marriage and death information (and other basic details) on Family Group Sheets. Refer to them when you're doing Internet searches or visiting libraries or archives. The free Family Group Sheet is on my Downloads page.

  • Findmypast's FREE Family Tree Builder scours the site's record collections, searching for details that match those on your tree, and then offers potential matches for you to review, accept or reject. No subscription needed - just register (free) and start using this tool.

  • Register with the British Newspaper Archive and you can view three pages from any title for free. There are also personal research tools to keep your searches on track, and you can add personal 'My Notes' to items in the Saved area.

  • A British Newspaper Archive subscription gives you three months for the price of two (save 31%).

  • Gen-eBooks offers discounts on different books each month.

  • On my Prize draws & Competitions page, use the 'Receive email when this page changes' button to be notified when a new prize is offered.

  • Get $40 discount when you book on any 'Unlock the Past' genealogy cruise quoting code UTPC-WEB06. (This discount applies long-term, and for any cruise listed on that site.)

  • Use the ChangeDetection button below ('Click here') to be notified of new offers from me or from Findmypast, Ancestry, British Newspaper Archive, Family Tree DNA or AncestryDNA tests for genealogy, The Genealogist, Legacy Family Tree, NSW certificate transcriptions, LostCousins etc.

I use and recommend The Book Depository
