Find My Past, found at FindMyPast.com, is a family history company established in 1965 by professional genealogists in the UK, and that has more recently expanded to the US.
How Does it Work?
In 2001, the original company Title Research moved online and created FindMyPast.com, where, similar to other ancestry based websites, they gave the public access to their databases of birth, marriage, and death records in the United Kingdom.
Since then, they have expanded through multiple partnerships, with companies like FamilySearch, the British Library, one of the world’s largest newspaper archives, the Naval & Military Press, which supply military records for the UK, and the National Archives, which is the UK government’s official archive of over 1000 years of records.
FindMyPast.com has over 18 million registered members worldwide with records going back to 1200. And just this past year, they expanded into the United States by acquiring the available US Census records.
To get access to the records available from Find My Past, you can either become a subscribed member or purchase Pay As You Go credit that you can use to acquire records.
A one year subscription to Find My Past costs $50.04, a six month subscription costs $31.50, and a one month subscription is $9.48. You can also choose the Pay As You Go credits, which costs $13.95 for 100 credits, which will be good for 90 days.
Some records cost as little as 1 credit, with others being as expensive as 30 credits, and the average being 5 credits. However, the website does provide a list of all their records and the credit cost before you purchase your credits.
