During the period of the “Lockdown” Calderdale Library have negotiated an arrangement with both Ancestry and FindMyPast so that anyone with a Calderdale Library card can use their websites, free of charge, by following some simple instructions.
- Go to the Libraries home page: https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/leisure-and-culture/libraries
- Click Search the Catalogue
- You will see some text for both FindMyPast & Ancestry and an instruction to log into your library account. (You need your library card number preceded by the R and also your library PIN. If by any chance, you don’t know/have forgotten this, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Once you are logged in, you will see links to click to take you into either resource.
I’m sure that you will find this an excellent service during these trying times. Calderdale Libraries are to be congratulated for organising this.
