Ancestry® Veteran’s Day Offer: Free Access To World’s Largest US Military Records Collection

The following announcement was written by Ancestry:

Ancestry® will offer free access to the world’s largest US military records collection.  Find inspiring stories about heroic family members who served our country.

    • Accessible November 8 at 7:00PM EST through November 17 at 11:59PM EST.
    • During that time frame, go to:
    • More than 260 million US military records
    • More than 60% of Ancestry U.S. subscribers who have a family tree have found at least one military record for an ancestor!
    • Find draft cards, enlistment records, soldier pension indexes and more
    • Our U.S. military records cover all 50 states and nearly 400 years of American history



    I just went back and double-checked. That is the link that Ancestry used in the announcement sent to me. Then I checked the link and found that you are right: it obviously doesn’t work.

    I then tried to find the corrected announcement on Ancestry’s web site and in the company’s press releases but was unable to do so. Does anyone reading this have a correct address?


The announcement says it starts PM, not AM. It’s still AM here in Washington state…


Haven’t found the US version yet..but the UK free access is here:


It’s after 9:00 pm EST and the link is still not working.


It’s saying I need a Premium membership to view the info. I can see the transcription of US WWII Draft Cards, Young Men, but not the original image.
