Free immigration records for one week

Ancestry has made its entire collection of immigration records freely available from today for one week.

This is a huge collection with many, many records of interest to those with Irish heritage. There are many gems, so I'll just scatter a few seeds of interest:

  • Names of Orphan Children, 1847. Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
  • Irish Canadian Emigration Records, 1823-1849
  • Scots-Irish Migration to South Carolina
  • Irish Immigrants: New York Port Arrival Records, 1846-1851
  • Irish Emigrants in North America 1775-1825
  • New South Wales, Australia, Wives & Children of Irish Convicts, 1825-1840
  • New Zealand Naturalisations, 1843-1981

Free access will end at 11.59pm on Monday 5 September.
