FW: SPECIAL EDITION: Free Access
- Greetings...Ancestry.com is one of the largest commercial genealogy sites on
the net; they have something like 2500 databases available, including
several related to Alabama...
I have no connection with the company other than having been a satisfied
customer for a number of months now...these genealogy databases are very
useful to my own non-genealogical research!! --aj wright // ajwright@...

8 December 2000
----- Free Access to All Ancestry.com Subscriber Databases
through December 21
FREE ACCESS TO ALL ANCESTRY.COM SUBSCRIBER DATABASES
Here's the opportunity you've been waiting for! Ancestry.com is
offering free access to all of its databases through
December 21. This is your chance to see why more than 270,000
researchers have chosen to subscribe to Ancestry.com in their quest
to discover their family's history.
Included in the offer is access to the images of original census
records that Ancestry.com recently began posting. These top-quality
images represent a more true-to-life depiction of the records and are
in most cases better than the original in readability.
Ancestry.com's Images Online are scanned in 256 shades of gray to
allow for variations in tone, as opposed to the less expensive method
of bi-tonal technologies used by competitors. The entire set of U.S.
Federal Censuses is expected to be online by spring 2001. A year's
access to these images will only cost current Ancestry.com members an
additional $39.95, as opposed to competitive offerings that in recent
interviews quoted impending subscription costs at as much as $99!
In other words, for $99.90 ($59.95 regular subscription + $39.95
Images Online subscription)--which is the price competitors are
charging for census only--Ancestry.com members will get access to the
census Images Online in better form, plus access to all of
Ancestry.com's other offerings. These offerings include such landmark
databases as the "PERiodical Source Index (PERSI)," the Biography and
Genealogical Master Index (BGMI), the American Genealogical-
Biographical Index (AGBI), the 1890 Census Reconstruction Project,
the Civil War Research Database, and Slave Narratives, just to name a
But that's not all. Ancestry.com has been adding databases at a
record-breaking pace and is on target to have more than 1 BILLION
records online by the end of the year.
Recent additions include:
--- "The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-33"
(see a sample entry at:
--- The New York City police census of 1890
--- 1910 Miracode indexes for Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Virginia
--- Statewide vital records indexes for a growing number of states
--- New York's naturalization petition index of 1907-24
--- Iowa cemeteries
--- And much more!
Now for a limited time, new members of Ancestry.com will get $10 off
the price of an annual data subscription, giving you a year's access
to the No. 1 genealogical site on the Internet for only $49.95. And
as an added bonus, we'll include a FREE Ancestry Reference Library
CD-ROM (a $49.95 value itself!), which includes 15 genealogy
reference books to help you research like a pro!
We're confident that once you have gotten a taste, you won't want to
be without continuous access to our site!
