Another idea for #FamilyHistoryMonth is to check out the free Ancestry record collections online.


Free Ancestry Records

Free Ancestry Records


There are hundreds of free record collections available at for those without a subscription membership. They’re listed in alphabetical order and you’ll need to use the right column scroll feature to see all available collections.

Some of these record collections are indexes and some include an index and images. “Index only” collections are labeled “Free Index”.

You may need to create a free account after using the free databases but this account will be free, limited, and not require a trial-membership to continue looking at the free records. Don’t submit credit card information or you’ll be signing up for a free trial that will auto-renew. And if while searching, you’re asked for a credit card number, you’re trying to search a subscription-only collection.

Happy Hunting! #FamilyHistoryMonth
