    Findmypast is FREE during every England World Cup Game 11th Jun 10 at 9:48 AM ign=WorldCup120610

    If you're not football mad, there is something else to do during the World Cup – make it your goal to research your family history.
    You can view all the records* on findmypast for free during every England World Cup match – all you need to do is register.
    How it works:
    • 30 minutes before kick-off we'll stop charging for 3 hours, which should give you plenty of time to explore what we have to offer.
    • To get ready, make sure you've registered as you'll need to sign in to view the records. If you need help, take a look at our handy Getting Started guide and our video tutorials.
    When England play, you don't pay!

    An apology, of sorts, is now on the FMP blogsite.....and 'promises' that things should run better on Friday:

    Time will no doubt tell.

    GRO -Free 90mins of VIEWING per England Worldcup game. reg by midinight for tomorrows
    This is the site Findmypast dot codot ukslash world - cup. jsp
    (replace each dot with. and slash with/ and add 3ws. and remove the spaces to get the link)

    You just have to register before midnight before the match. If England get through then just register anytime for later matches and you will get the benifits the next time round. I have only just found this, hence the late notice for tomorrow.

    It was not on the freebies board
    Thank you for putting my email in with the others but I did check the freebies listing, under family, home, internet and misc but did not see it so that is why I added it as I thought others should get a chance at this good deal. I also did a search of the site on key words and did not find the thread that way either.

    Again sorry if I used the board wrong.

    This would not allow me to post with the message I was replying to as that had a "quote" link in it!

    Just bumping this, as available again on Sunday 27th.

    They seemed to have ironed out the problems from the 1st couple of games as it was working fine yesterday and no crashing etc. I used it for the 90mins starting at about 11am (managed to save all the census records i needed) and also watch the game in the afternoon

    It's particularly useful if you're interested in the 1911 census.
