Ancestry Immigration records

Did you ancestors help to set up the United States? Or maybe they were among the early pioneers in Australia? Perhaps they came to Britain from exotic faraway lands, or fled persecution in Europe?

Some of the most remarkable and emotional stories in your family history come from those who started new lives overseas – or arrived on our shores from abroad. Now we’re giving you the chance to explore those stories for FREE, with five days’ access to all our worldwide immigration and emigration records.

From 29th August to 5th September, you can search and view records from the UK, North America, Australia, Europe and several other popular destinations – without paying a penny. Follow your ancestors’ journeys with millions of passenger lists, naturalisation records, immigrant registers and convict transportation lists.
