Fold3, Ancestry's dedicated military records sister site is offering a $30 discount on new 12-month subscriptions purchased before the end of the month.
Offer ends 30 September
The site holds more than 487million records, many of them in military collections you won't find elsewhere online. Most come from the US and UK National Archives, and contain not only images of original military documents but also stories, photos and personal documents of the men and women who served in the military.

Among the gems awaiting researchers with Irish-born ancestors are the US Civil War Service records and Widows Pensions collection; World War II draft cards, photos and records; and the British Army WW1 Service Records, War Diaries and ROyal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner records.

In addition to Military records, the site provides access to city directories, newspapers, naturalisation records, and the 1860–1930 US Censuses.

The current offer reduces the annual subscription from US$79.95 to US$49.95 and is available only to new Fold3 subscribers (ie not to renewing subscribers). It will end on 30 September at 11:59pm MDT.
