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 a new window):  (1) this page;  (2) my Facebook page for genealogy, 'Judy Webster Genealogy';  (3) 'JudyQld'. If a pop-up window appears, just close it or press 'Esc' on your keyboard.

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)  New subscribers via the Australian/NZ site can get 10% off the price of 12 month Findmypast World access until 11:59pm (AEST) 30 April 2017.

  • NOTE!  Check this page again later this week, when I will list new offers from FindMyPast.

  • (UPDATED)  Until 27 Apr 2017 at 11:59pm (CST time in the USA), Family Tree DNA has reduced the price of their best-selling DNA tests for genealogy (for finding genetic matches and connecting with relatives across all your ancestral lines). Most people start with the Family Finder test.

  • LostCousins is completely free until 30 April 2017. If you are not familiar with this site, see my article 'Using LostCousins for Genealogy (UK, Ireland, USA and Canada)'. Although it's always free to search on LostCousins, you usually need to be a subscriber to initiate contact with someone new, but during April that's free too.

  • During April, Gould Genealogy has the entire Unlock the Past guide books range on sale (25% off), and the Australian History and Genealogy Handbook costs just $1.

  • Gen-eBooks is offering four 50% discount specials each month (two from Unlock the Past and two from Archive Digital Books Australasia).

  • Watch for changes to my Prize draws and competitions page.

  • 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.)


Previous offers that have now ended:  cheaper copies of hospital admission registers and old age pension records;  discount price for AncestryDNA test for genealogy;  other discounts or free access at FindMyPast, Ancestry and the British Newspaper Archive;  free access to various other sites.
