2 x 12 month British Newspaper Archive subscriptions

How to take part

Share the link with anyone you know in the UK who is new to family history and might be interested in exploring their roots.


Every new person who registers and starts building their FREE family tree will instantly be entered into the draw for the chance to win and share the prize with the person who referred them. So, the more people you introduce to the amazing world of family history, the more chance you’ll have of winning. You'll find the full Terms & Conditions below.


The competition closes at 11:59pm on 31st January 2018 and shortly after Findmypast will contact a winner who started their family tree. It will be their responsibility to share the prize package with you, the referrer.


Terms & Conditions for existing LostCousins members

This competition is designed to attract new people into the world of family history, so anyone you refer who has previously registered with Findmypast will be unable to take part.
