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.
