We're delighted to announce the launch of our first ever Festive Countdown!

To get you in the mood for the holidays, we’ve lined up a host of festive treats, from history quizzes and prize draws to guest columns, historical recipes, and expert family history tips. Check out our dedicated Festive Countdown page, or visit our Facebook page every day between now and the December 25 to discover your daily historical highlight, and be in with a chance to win.

And that’s not all. When the turkey is finished and the eggnog is polished off, we’ll be launching the 2014 Start Your Family Tree Week at Findmypast. The holidays are a great opportunity to catch up with relatives, discover what they know about your ancestors and grow your family tree. So, for a week from 26th December we’ll be helping everyone get further with their family trees through helpful guides, webinars, expert insights and much more. Watch out for news throughout December, and get ready for some very exciting announcements!
