This is a radical new offering for anyone wishing to receive free access to the world's largest commercial online genealogy databases. Earlier this week, FamilySearch.org announced plans to collaborate with several commercial family history organizations to share records, tools and other resources to allow more people to build, preserve and share their family trees online. (You can read that announcement in my earlier article at http://goo.gl/vL3Bj7 while the complete announcement is available at https://familysearch.org/node/2523.)
Another part of the agreement has been announced at the 2014 RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City: free access will be granted to Ancestry.com, FindMyPast.com and MyHeritage.com in LDS Church family history centers worldwide. Anyone may access these commercial web sites at no charge by visiting a nearby Family History Center. You may find your nearest center at https://familysearch.org/locations/centerlocator.
In addition, members of the LDS Church will be granted free subscriptions to Ancestry.com (the world edition subscription), MyHeritage.com (plus subscription) and FindMyPast.com (plus subscription), accessible from any location, including in-home access. These sites have between three and four times the number of records FamilySearch has, so it's a substantial amount of both records and technology.
