Find My Past free offer gets overwhelmed

 

I don’t know how many of you tried to get onto Find My Past for their free access 3 hours whilst the England match was playing, but if you did then I bet you were as frustrated as I was about either not getting onto the site at all or if you did get onto it getting bumped off before you got a chance to take a look at anything!

Surely they must have realised that their site was going to get millions of hits during that 3 hour period especially at the start. It gave me memories of the debacle of the first launch of the 1901 census and I would have thought that Brightsolid would have known what to expect.

I’ll post something on the Mad About genealogy forum and perhaps you could tell me and others of your experiences!

    I have just tried to access the free Find My Past access during the World Cup and found out, too late, that I had to register by midnight the night before the match.

    The information about the offer came from the FFHS to our society but there was no mention about registering beforehand.

    Feel very cross as I’ve arranged my whole evening around it.
