Ancestry opens further records

For those who don't subscribe to Ancestry, and if the open access to Ancestry Library edition available through many public libraries doesn't work for you, there may be something in this announcement about US resources.
  • FREE access to search nearly 500 million records - The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration has teamed up with its long-term digitization partner Ancestry to provide FREE access to search nearly 500 million records and images on Ancestry starting today, making it even easier for people to discover their own family history from home.  Exploring the records is completely free – just create an account by entering your email to start your search. 
  • At-home educational resources for families and teachers - Lesson plans that Ancestry® has created target a number of core subjects, with educational topics ranging from the American Revolutionary War to the 1940 U.S. Federal Census. 
  • Tools To Get Started - Videos are also available on Ancestry Academy™, a free program offering online courses to help families get started on their family tree building. A library of educational videos can be found at: www.ancestry.com/academy
