October is Family History Month and the perfect opportunity for everyone to share amazing record finds, significant moments in history, and the characters we’ve discovered along the way.

Every day in October, Findmypast will be sharing the stories we find throughout history to recognize Family History Month, reminiscent of the “show and tell” of our school days. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates, using the hashtag #FMPShowandTell. Share your own discoveries with us, and watch for weekly highlights on the blog. You never know who we might find!

Every week in October, we’ll also be giving away a free Findmypast World subscription to one lucky IrishCentral reader. To be in with a chance of winning simply like and share the Findmypast Family History Month post on IrishCentral’s Facebook and we’ll choose a winner at random each week. Remember, a new post will go up on Facebook each week so you can enter for a chance to win more than once.

Family History Month is the perfect time to start tracing your ancestors if you haven’t already or to take your research even further.
