American Ancestors NEHGS logo

Do NOT mistake this site for Ancestry.  American Ancestors is the web site of one of the premier genealogy societies in the country.  The New England Historic Genealogical Society (Newbury Street, Boston) has resources  that are unique. The NEHGS is opening up its website, American Ancestors, to everyone  for free for one week. From today, Wednesday, April 6th to April 13th, you can go to http://www.americanancestors.org/Free-Billion and hunt for your ancestors.  Though obviously an extraordinary site for New England research, check this out even if you have (as far as you know) no New England ancestors.  There is a reason why they changed the name of their website from New England Ancestors to American Ancestors. Check it out.

Newton City Hall 5 February 2016

FindMyPast comes through again with something to keep us busy on a snowy New England day. Remember what I said just two posts ago about FindMyPast going aggressively after the American Market?  I just learned from a posting on Dick Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter that FindMyPast announced at RootsTech that it is launching the largest online collection of U.S. marriages in American history with over 100 million records dating from 1650 t0 2010. The work on this project is not completed, but FindMyPast is making the first 33 million of these records available to anyone who wants to use them for free through February 15th.  To learn more details, click on the link above to Dick Eastman’s article. Once you take a look at the article, go to  http://www.findmypast.com and try out the records.
