Free access to Ancestry's 'New Global Collection'
These new records cover 67 countries, more than half of them brand-new to the Ancestry stable. Given the widely-travelled nature of the Irish Diaspora, this new collection is one all Irish family historians should rummage about in.
To gain free access to these records, you'll need an account with Ancestry. If you already have one, you can search and view straightaway. If you don't have one, you'll need to create a free account when you want to view a record. You don't have to provide any financial details; just sign up with your name, email address and your chosen password. That's it.
The free access to these records is live now and will continue until midnight (presumably a US time zone), Monday 1 September.
