Today The Generations Network and The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) signed an agreement that will make millions of historical records available on Ancestry.com. With the new agreement, Ancestry.com will have technicians and scanning machines onsite at NARA to continually digitize content for online access faster than ever before. To learn more about this agreement as well as NARA documents already available on Ancestry.com, visit http://www.ancestry.com/nara.
To commemorate this agreement and to celebrate Memorial Day, we’re making the entire Ancestry.com U.S. Military Collection available for free to the public from May 20 through May 31. Visit http://www.ancestry.com/military to view more than 100 million names and 700 titles and databases of military records, the majority of which come from NARA.
