  1. On "Find my Past" 1pm Fri 3/6, well ahead of the weekend crunch. Nothing is working, statement said they knew about it, AND it showed that same message a few days ago when I registered. I also see in "their" FAQ..that another person had that same problem the last time the "Find My Past" folks offered a few weekend.

  2. Hi, Joy, I just tried the Findmypast free access and didn’t have any problems. I searched, and when I clicked to view a record, I was prompted to set up a free registration. After that, I was able to view the record. Maybe they had a rough start, and you’ll have better luck if you try again?

  3. Sorry Diane. I sat up free registration earlier in the wk before the free started. I also went out to check and my name/acct is there. I have now tried Sat 1:30 pm. I typed in my Grandmothers name, birth year & location, it eventually sent me to the page saying you are having a problem and hope to have I fixed. Later, I got back on again, I typed another family member’s info in….it thought for maybe 3 or 4 minutes and went again to the "having difficulty page".
    We’re having a few technical difficulties

    Please accept our apologies. We’re aware of the problem and we’re working hard to fix it.

    Sorry if this causes you any inconvenience – we’re confident we can get the site up and running again very soon.

    Thank you for your patience.
