FindMyPast.com has Free Access Week June 29 to July 6 ... Travel & Migration, Various Census, and US Marriage Records

In honor of Our Independence Day, FindMyPast.com is giving free access from Wed., June 29 to Wed., July 6, to all "Travel and Migration" records; all "U.S. Marriage" records; and all U.K., Irish, Canadian and U.S. census. 

Some of the records included in the "Travel and Migration" collection are U.S. passenger lists; Passenger Lists Leaving UK 1890-1960; over 827,000 convict transportation records; over 10 million new and existing naturalization records; and over 1.7 million brand new U.S. passport applications.
 
There is a dedicated search page for this free access week. You can reach the free access week page at the FindMyPast.com website here.
 
During this free access time period, you will need to sign-in to either your subscription account or free account. If you do not have a free account at Find My Past already, simply create one. (A free account is not the same as a free trial subscription so do not click on the link to sign up for a free trial subscription.) The simplest way to create a free account is to do a search, click to view a result image and the website will ask you to sign into your account or create a free account. 

Remember, over at the original FindMyPast.co.uk website, its free access week includes military records and census. See our June 24th post.

Don't forget that some libraries, such as the local LDS Family History Libraries, have institutional subscriptions to FindMyPast for patron use while in the library. So if you spot something else during this free access offer, there are options to investigate further.

 
Have fun searching.

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
