MyHeritage is celebrating those who served this Memorial day making their entire collection of military records available by free access from May 25-31, 2022. No time zone is listed so I am presuming Central Time for cutoff. 

To search their collection go to: https://www.myheritage.com/research/catalog/category-3000/military

You will find a green “free” sign next to the collections that are being offered. 

You are required to register with name and email but no credit card information is required.

 

If you try to access records not included during the free access offer or after the promotion you will be invited to subscribe.

 

You can refine by location: Canada, Europe, Oceania and the United States.

 

MyHeritage is home to 694 collections of 74 million military records from all around the world — including draft, enlistment, and service records, pension records, and other military documents. Several important military record collections

have been added in the past few months, including collections from France, Germany, and the United States. The collections contain records going back as far as the mid-1700s, providing information on people across the globe who were

involved in the major armed conflicts of the past few centuries.

 

I have no affiliation with MyHeritage and am posting this solely for the information of the reader.
