Saturday, December 28, 2013 Free Saturday and Sunday

Free Access to Ancestry.comIn a campaign to highlight new collections added in 2013, is offering free access to select collections today and tomorrow. Free access ends 29 December 2013 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Access to the collections requires a free account which can be obtained without providing credit card information. You will receive promotional email, which you can subsequently opt out of.

The selected collections are:

U.S. Vital Records
U.S. Censuses
U.S. Military Records
U.S. Immigration Records
Other U.S. Collections
UK Records
Canadian Records
Other International Records


  1. great free, but no access because the site is down

  2. Site is down again. Promote "free access" and what you get is NO access.

  3. Anyone know when it will be back up?

  4. Did you hear about the airlines that advertised (computer glitch, no doubt) cheap flights to Hawaii ($7.00)? They honored anyone who happened upon that offer on that day and purchased tickets. I think if Ancestry is going to offer this free access and the site goes down, then they should extend it for a week or two more!

    So, I have user access for U.S. records, under normal conditions. Would I have to get an independant free account or can I use my regular sign in?

  5. We did experience some website issues earlier today and we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Please take advantage of the free access through tomorrow evening as there are some great collections available right now.

    @Margaret: You may use your existing account to access the records above.
