    My local library is closed for the duration, of course, and they've given library members full access at home for the duration - to everything.  So for the first time, I'm able to see some passenger lists of 1930s ocean liners that are relevant to me, that sort of thing.  Check out your library for more permanent free access :) 
    When I log on from the library website,
    Find my past says I have exceeded my monthly limit,

    Perhaps I will wait until the library is open.

    Thanks for the info though. :)

    What a shame, Adonis - with my library, they arranged a special linkie, they've had the same problems as you describe with findmypast, but I've been in contact with a librarian via facebook (weird!) and they say they can help.  The wheels grind small though, so I don't know if/ when that will happen.  They sound like they're setting it up on a case by case basis.
