HAALLLOOO genealogy enthusiasts everywhere, this one bears broadcast 🙂 :

Find your military heroes in our free records” —  “In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, we’ve made our 65 million world military records and over 265 million British and Irish censuses FREE for a week. Find your family making history in the most comprehensive collection of British Army records from World War 1 available online.“[1]

Notice of this freebie offer was emailed me in the form of “Genea-Musings” blogger Randy Seaver’s post, “Free Access to Findmypast Military Records from 27 June to 4 July”[2], which I could not for the lifeof me figure out a way to simply re-blog, so, I am blogging a post on a post, how’s that?! 🙂 .
