A little gift of 1940s American records


Another free selection from Ancestry.co.uk for a limited period, this time to celebrate the release of 1940 USA census images (or to distract us from the fact that they aren’t all on Ancestry with a big bang but are coming bit by bit).

As they say, they’ve made “all our American records covering the ‘1940 era’ completely FREE!” from 2nd April to midnight 10th April. Over 750 million records from 139 different collections including various birth, marriage and death records, passenger lists, military records and the 1930 US Census (but not the 1940). You will need to be registered on the site, but don’t need to be paying a sub, to access.
