    Findmypast is FREE during every England World Cup Game 11th Jun 10 at 8:48 AM
    www.findmypast.co.uk/world-cup.jsp?utm_source=FB&utm_content=120610&utm_campa 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!

    There's also a link on their home page for a free 14 day trial. Now i can't decide which to opt for! Why is life so complicated?

    But you'll already be registered due to taking the England offer. That's why I said i didn't know which to go for.

    Registering and subscribing (even the 14 day trial) are two different things.

    I am already registered (have never subscribed) and I am hoping I get the free Engalnd match stuff. And could potentially do the 14 day trial in the future.

    I've been meaning to go on a site like this in a while, so you have just made my day However as said above I might as well use the 14 day trial it seems.

    Me neither. I just want to see one record on the 1911 census and I am having no joy

    The Sky HD box is broke, so I cannot even watch the match.
