In Recognition of Memorial Day, MyHeritage Is Offering Free Access to All Military Records Until May 26, 2020

Many of us have a relative or ancestor who served in the military. MyHeritage invites you to pay tribute to these heroes and honor their legacy by learning more about them through military records.

The MyHeritage collection consists of 57 million records and includes draft, enlistment, and service records, pension records, and other military documents from North America and around the world, dating back to the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century.

Why is still asking for credit card information if it’s free?


    —-> Why is still asking for credit card information if it’s free?

    Because that is standard procedure for almost all web sites that are offering free access to anything that normally requires payment. Offering free access is a great form of publicity and advertising. This is true for almost all commercial genealogy sites as well as thousands of other web sites.

    There are multiple purposes for asking for a credit card. Probably the most common reason is for identification – The company wants to make sure you are not one person who keeps signing up for free access time and time again. Most web sites will offer free access as a “one time special,” not something that can be repeated time and time again, therefore allowing one person to defraud the company of revenue.
