You can change it later - I think it's just for stats.

If you are in third level you likely can access https://www.irishnewsarchive.com/ for free through your student account online ,you can for NUIG anyways.

I am now wondering if there's any other resources for genealogy I can access for free.Ive been reading lots of local history books in the library/special collections.Is there any specific to genealogy?My ancestors were all famers.

Claire Santry reports 40% off on FMP Ultimate sub. She says
Quote:
FindMyPast.com (none of the other FMP 'territories') is offering a 40% discount on its 12-month Ultimate subscription. This is the sub that gives you access to everything in FindMyPast's collection, including the British and Irish newspaper collection.

To take up the offer, you need to sign up for the sub before 23.59 GMT, Friday 29 March.

After the initial 12 month period, your subscription will be automatically renewed at the normal price unless you un-tick the ‘auto-renew my subscription’ box in the My Account section of the site. It's easy enough to do.
When I logged in, best I could see was 26% off.

Enter discount code Pat40offULTEUS at the bottom of the page to get 40% off. That comes to $8.95/month, billed as a single payment of $107.40.

Just signed up for another year with the 40% off. Happy St Patricks day all. Off to Glasnevin tomorrow to look for some grave stones, most of the time there are none but last week I found a relative going back to 1847....

You know the museum will tell you if there's a headstone without going?

Thanks Leck (and Claire S) I've succumbed. I was toying with the idea of a newspaper archive subscription, but that 40%from FMP pushed me over the edge.

Just keep an eye out for future promotions. If a better one comes up, say 50%, they are good about switching you to the lower rate.

I got 50% off an Ancestry sub yesterday. I cancelled on St Patrick's Day as it was about to renew at full price. I rang twice but couldn't get them to budge on price. But third time lucky - yesterday the CSR offered me 50% off the World Explorer for six months - full price would be $149, I got it for $74. I do have a US credit card and address and think the US deals are always better than those available for the UK site. Of course once you log on, at least with World sub, you wouldn't know which site you're on.

So if you want to buy/renew an Ancestry sub, keep pestering them until you get a good deal.

Irish News Archive offering 50% off subscriptions for the moon landing anniversary. Use code Moon50.

I've taken out an annual sub for the first time so I won't be bugging you lovely people for look-ups until at least next July! And very happy to do quid pro quo.

That's good to see. I've availed of it in the past and it's well worth it at that price.
