Ancestry.com announced yesterday that it is offering free access to select immigration and naturalization records through the Labor Day holiday, ending 5 September 2011. The announcement is a little unclear regarding the set that is free, so you’ll have to try it out and see for yourself.
Access is not quite completely free. You must pay by disclosing your e-mail address to Ancestry.com, a proposition not nearly as costly as it was back in the bad days. If you already have a username and password, you can use them without registering again. This includes those with free member tree accounts and with expired subscription accounts.
Visit www.ancestry.com/immigration for more information and to try it out for yourself.
