    Free Access for At-Home Family Tree Building

    The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration has teamed up with its long-term digitization partner Ancestry to provide FREE access to search nearly 500 million records and images on Ancestry starting today, making it even easier for people to discover their own family history from home.

    Exploring the records is completely free – just create an account by entering your email to start your search.  *Use the link that says “sign in>” found in top righthand corner.                                                                                                             ...or here is the Direct link to the sign up page: Create Account

    For those new to Ancestry, several videos are also available on Ancestry Academy™, a free program offering online courses to help families get started on their family tree building. A library of educational videos can be found at: www.ancestry.com/academy.                                                                                                       The Ancestry Academy provides access to videos showing how to search and start a family tree … very helpful and interesting!
