Free Databases on Ancestry.com

Free Databases on Ancestry.com

Yesterday’s mailbox spoke of the databases available free on Ancestry.com. Here is a list of the 260 databases, sorted from largest to smallest. Sometimes only the index is free; images still require a subscription. I believe the 1880 and 1881 censuses are this way.

Some (all?) require a free registration. You may be offered a free trial. Decline unless you wish to check out all Ancestry.com databases. If you accept a free trial, it will automatically become a regular subscription if not cancelled before the end of the trial.

  1. AI, your list, while valuable, does not include all of the free databases.

    If you go to the Card Catalog in OldSearch mode and search for "Family Data Collection" as keyword in quotes, you will find a few more. Of course the term 'database' does not indicate that the item has anything of evidentiary value.

  2. Thanks for that table, very helpful! It must have taken you awhile to gather all that data, so thanks!

  3. Dear Geolover,

    For obvious reasons I purposefully left off
    - Private Member Trees,
    - Private Member Photos, and
    - Private Member Stories.

    Did I miss any others?
