Free Access Week at

Ancestry Free Access Week announced Free Access to immi­gra­tion and travel records from around the world through September 5th.

This is a very large col­lec­tion of mate­ri­als. If you are not an Ancestry sub­scriber, this would be a per­fect time to drop in to take a look and do some seri­ous research in their travel and immi­gra­tion records.

Another note, Ancestry has announced that the 1940 cen­sus will be avail­able for free, once they post it after April 1, 2012. I’m look­ing for­ward to it. (But to be clear, the 1940 cen­sus will also be avail­able on the National Archives web­site for free. It will be up to Ancestry to demon­strate com­pelling value in terms of usabil­ity and search­a­bil­ity to make the 1940 cen­sus a dif­fer­en­tia­tor for Ancestry.)
