Got ancestors who served in the military? This is the weekend to research
In honor of the US Memorial day, the major genealogy websites are releasing all or some of their military records for free searching. Here are the details:
FamilySearch - Always free
I may be a little partial to FamilySearch, but you can search their military records for free all the time.
Findmypast.com – May 24-27
All military records (US and international) on findmypast can be accessed free of charge from May 24-May 27.
Read the announcement. Then search the military records from:
Ancestry.com May 22-27
MyHeritage.com – May 21-28
fold3 – USCT May 21-31
Since fold3 focuses strictly on military records, I guess they didn’t want to open up their entire website for free access…. But they are releasing the records they have of the US Colored Troops for free searching.
