Findmypast.com, a UK-based genealogy site, began with a focus on UK and Irish records, but has since added large collections for the United States and Canada. The acquisition of Mocavo added to the site’s resources which include vital records, church records, military records, newspapers, passenger lists and censuses, including all US census records from 1790 to 1940. You can build your family tree on the site and attach records to it, but you can’t yet search all the site’s family trees.

Power user tips
- Try it free with a 14-day trial membership. You’ll need to enter your credit card information on the next screen. Remember to cancel before the trial period ends to avoid charges.
- See all your records. If you’re a Findmypast member, click the My Records tab at the top of the page to see a list of all the records you’ve viewed on the site.
- Look for hints. Findmypast is testing automated hints when the site’s records match people in your Findmypast family tree. Start a tree under the My Family Trees link. A number by a person’s name in pedigree or family view indicates hints are available.
- Save time with saved searches. After you run a search, click Save Search at the top right of your results page. When you want to run the search again, click Saved Searches under the My Account tab.
- Search with a wildcard. You can search with a wildcard at the end of a name to find results with names that start the same as your ancestor’s. Use a question mark to stand in for one letter and an asterisk for zero or more letters. Johns*, for example, finds records for Johns, Johnson and Johnston.
