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.
