FREE Access to UK Records on Ancestry.co.uk – This Weekend Only

ancestry uk free records

This weekend only, 26-27 July 2014, you can get access to over 1 BILLION UK records for free at Ancestry.co.uk. Click here to get started.

For US residents, the link does work if you set up an account using the UK site. If you already have a World subscription at Ancestry.com, you aren’t getting anything new – you already have access to these records.

But for those of you with a US-only subscription OR without any current Ancestry subscription, this is a good way to “cross the pond” and get access to records. I was able to fully test the site and I could get access to my Leehive records and download them.

Enjoy!

What I am finding are posts for genealogy and history book titles such as “Genealogical and Family History of Central New York.” Here’s the story behind what I found and how this “free” book could lead to lots of trouble including unwanted charges on your credit card!

It’s Only a Link . . . .

So I’m reviewing recent Google Alerts and I see an article that catches my eye:
