In honor of Veterans’ Day, FindMyPast, the British-owned genealogy site is offering free access to their 70 million military records this weekend.
You have to register to access them, but there is no cost to register. The records will be available until 11:59 pm (GMT) on Sunday, November 13. (That’s 6:59 pm EST in the US.)
The collections include records from the U.S. and Canada, as well as the UK, Ireland and Australian military.
I’m going to pull out my table of military ancestors and look to see whether FindMyPast has some records I haven’t found before. It seems like a wonderful opportunity to learn more about my military ancestors!
