This weekend only, 26-27 July 2014, you can get access to over 1 BILLION UK records for free at Ancestry.co.uk. Click here to get started.
For US residents, the link does work if you set up an account using the UK site. If you already have a World subscription at Ancestry.com, you aren’t getting anything new – you already have access to these records.
But for those of you with a US-only subscription OR without any current Ancestry subscription, this is a good way to “cross the pond” and get access to records. I was able to fully test the site and I could get access to my Leehive records and download them.
