Ancestry.com Opens WWII Records
Provo, Utah-based family history and historical information site Ancestry.com is opening up free access to another one of its sections over the next few days, as part of the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. Ancestry.com has been offering free access since Friday to its World War II records, allowing users free access to records from the U.S. Armed Forces until Wednesday. Ancestry.com frequently rotates parts of its collection into free, public access. Among the free records available are the U.S. Navy Muster Rolls between 1939-1949, access to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific Database, and U.S. WWII Young Men's Draft Cards.
