Libraries, schools & companies


We offer a range of options to libraries, schools, companies and other organisations that want to use Findmypast. We make it easy for you to provide multiple users with access to our site. Choose which of the options below best suits you then get in touch. As with the consumer site, you can choose to have access to records just from Britain, or all our records from around the world.

"Findmypast is an excellent database of resources - it's extremely professional and offers great service. I deal with people researching every day and this site is the one I constantly refer people to." - Kathy Smalley, Family & Local History Librarian

Access for libraries and schools

When you subscribe to the Community Edition you will benefit from:

  • Full access to Findmypast* records

    Corporate packages

    Our corporate plans allow multiple users to access the site via one or more accounts. There is no limit to the number of users who can access the site at one time. You can also restrict access to a fixed IP address, or IP address range, which will ensure that your account is only used by users logged on to your network.
