In honor of Easter weekend Ancestry.ca (Canada) is offering free access to
all Commonwealth Records through 28 March 23:59 PM EDT. You will be required
to register with an email address and password. No credit card information
is required. You must put in at least a first and last name to do the
search. Go to: http://www.ancestry.ca/cs/easter2016

Note: when your search results appear they will say view free access and to
the right of the screen it will say "start free trial" that will take you to
a subscription offer and a 14-day free trial which requires credit card
information. That is not the free access weekend offer.

When you go to the "free access" >from your search results -click on the view
to see the results. When that window opens, on the left of the screen it
says your free record sign up to save this record-that will take you to a
subscription offer and a 14day free trial which requires credit card
information. That is not the free access weekend offer. Under the free
weekend you may only view the record, not save it >from the Ancestry.ca
website. If you want to save the record to your computer, do a print screen
to your photo shop or other photo software and save the record that way.

The free access is for featured collections only. Accessing other than the
featured collections will result in being prompted to subscribe. To see
which are the featured collections go to:

posting this solely for the information of the reader.
