To properly commemorate Veterans Day, Findmypast will be making their global records available for FREE this weekend to make it easy for people to discover the heroes in their own families. They are making their collection of family history records from around the world (including the most comprehensive collection of Irish records available online) available for FREE from Friday 7th November to Monday 10th November.
Paul Nixon, military history expert at Findmypast, explained: “Our records reveal the bravery of all those who have fought for their country on home soil and on foreign, as well as the stories of many thousands of ordinary, unsung heroes. We want to help more people discover the history of their own families, understand the lives that they lived and what experiences they faced. Veterans’ Day is one of the few days in the year when everyone reflects on the sacrifices of military personnel, and we want to help people make their past more personal by having the opportunity to discover their own family history for free.”
