A member of our local genealogy club just emailed to tell me about an offer from the New England Historic Genealogical Society. They are offering free access to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont vital records (birth, marriage, and death records) until the end of January. They are promoting their free guest memberships. It’s worth checking out if you have ancestors in these three states, even if you’ve already found information in places like Ancestry or FamilySearch. NEHGS has materials and collections you will find nowhere else.
To find more details about their guest (free) memberships, check out their American Ancestors website.
Below is the information posted about the offer on the American Ancestors website.
Good to Meet You, 2016!
Register free as a Guest User to get access to three of our most popular vital records databases for the month of January 2016.
- Massachusetts Vital Records, 1841-1910
- Vermont Births, Marriages and Deaths to 2008
- New Hampshire Births to 1901, Deaths and Marriages to 1937
Guest User accounts allow web visitors to use a limited suite of AmericanAncestors.org databases and access content such as making purchases from the online store. To receive unlimited access to all 250+ million records and other benefits, become a member of NEHGS.
In addition to the standard suite of databases available to guest users, other new databases may be available to guest user for a limited time. To see the complete list of databases currently available to guest users, visit the advanced search page and use the “free” check box.
