I have used the Find My Past website on quite a few occasions over the past year. In some cases I have found it to be quite helpful and more useful than others but I have also found that there are some records missing. I am a subscribing member on Ancestry.co.uk and only use Find My Past as a 'pay as you go' service as there are very few times I need to use this site.

FindMyPast.com is a website aimed primarily at those looking to research a family history - either their own or that of someone else. It's popularity stems from it's free access to transcripts of the 1881 England and Wales census, and also as of October 2009 it is the only genealogy website to offer the 1911 England and Wales census on subscription. As well as offering censuses every ten years between 1841 and 1911, it also offers a selection of military records, primarily deaths during the two world wars as well as emigration records, a searchable index of births, marriages and deaths, and a small number of parish records. The site also includes a fully-functioning .. Read the complete review
