FHC Ancestry access

Friday, April 06, 2007

For the last few years Family History Centers have been blessed to have free access to Ancestry.com. As of 1 April this arrangement stopped but there has been some confusion as to what exactly is happening.
While it is true that FHCs no longer have free access to Ancestry's complete collection, the Family History Library Edition of Ancestry does allow FHC patrons to access 43 databases (indexes and transcribed records - not originals). The following list details what will still be available.

These records are still essential to researchers with British and US roots. Please continue to visit your FHC to do your research in these areas. You should also realize that many FHC staff are not completely aware of what is still available as these changes are so new, so please print this blog entry and take it with you.
