If you're not football mad, there is something else to do during the World Cup – make it your goal to research your family history in Engeland.
You can view all the records on findmypast for free during every England World Cup match – all you need to do is, register.
How it works:
* 30 minutes before kick-off we'll stop charging for 3 hours, which should give you plenty of time to explore what we have to offer.
* To get ready, make sure you've registered as you'll need to sign in to view the records. If you need help, take a look at our handy Getting Started guide and our video tutorials.
When England play, you don't pay!
With this free offer, you may view the census records from 1841-1911, parish records for baptisms, marriages and burials 1538 onwards, military records covering World War I and World War II, and migration records.
Subscription usually amounts to between £59.95 to £149.90 depending on the level subscribed to.
