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.
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.
- For a limited time, the Living DNA test is available at a discount price. This is the only test that shows *where* within Britain and Ireland your ancestry comes from (going back up to 10 generations), but you should do it in addition to the Family Finder and/or AncestryDNA test if you want to contact as many relatives as possible. I tested with FamilyTreeDNA first because it has extra features, and later I also did the AncestryDNA and Living DNA tests.
- New users can get a 14 day free trial at Findmypast.
- Almost 1 billion original census, parish and military records from England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the USA are always FREE to *VIEW* (not just free to search). No need for a subscription or credit card - just register (free).
- 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.
- The British Newspaper Archive gives you three months for the price of two (save 31%).
- 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. Download the Family Group Sheet in Word(.doc) format or PDF format.
- 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.
- 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
