JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Ancestry.ca Free Access Thru Dec 31 1:AM ET for Canadian Birth, Marriage and Death Records #general
Jan Meisels Allen
Ancestry.ca (Canada) is offering free access to birth, marriage and death
records through December 31, 2017 1:00 am ET. This is for Canadian records
only. To see the featured collections go to:
Note: You may get a reminder that you are on Ancestry.Ca and do you want to
be directed to your country's Ancestry, such as US, UK, etc. Click on
continue with Ancestry.ca to access the featured collections .
To access the database go to: https://www.ancestry.ca/cs/newyears
You will be required to register with your name, email and password. No
credit card information is required. The results will return with a green
View Free access under the "view". On the right is an invitation for a
free trial. The free trial is NOT the free access offer for New Year's When
you click on your "free view record" the records opens . To save the record
to your computer do a print screen to your photo software. You can also
print the record. On the left side of the screen is "Your free record",
where you are invited to sign up to save this record. If you go there you
will be invited to subscribe-that is not the New Year's free offer.
Fill in the name of the person you are researching.
If you try to access records not in the featured collection you will be
directed to a subscription page which does require a credit card.
If the other country Ancestry programs are having a similar New Year's offer
I have not been advised. If I learn of any other Ancestry's having a free
offer for New year's I will post it.
I have no affiliation with Ancestry and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader.
