Historic Newspapers Offers 40 Free Credits on FindMyPast

Old newspapers are the best way to round out your understanding of the social history of your ancestors. They give you a glimpse into the times in which your ancestor lived.

FindMyPast is offering a £5 voucher (worth 40 credits) when you make a purchase from Historic Newspapers.

Historic Newspapers offers the largest collection of original newspapers from the UK dating back to over two centuries. These make wonderful unique, commemorative gifts for the family historian, history buff, special friend or relative or for that hard to shop for person.

Historic Newspapers also has special collection editions including Victorian Era newspapers, Napoleonic Era newspapers and my personal favourite, the Jack the Ripper Collection.

With every purchase from Historic Newspapers, you receive a free decade book. These are reproductive copies of top stories from the decade corresponding to or closest in decade to the year of the original newspaper purchased. The decade books span 1920-1990.

Here is the link to the Historic Newspapers website:
