Coinciding with Veterans Weekend, Find My Past launched (with a rather emotional video) their latest campaign aiming to help everyone find their military ancestors and learn more about their family history, completely FREE.
From NOW until Monday (07:00am EST on 10th November) you can explore their extensive collection of US, UK and Irish records back hundreds of years and newspaper pages from all over the globe.
With an increasing number of people asking the big question “where did I come from?” and the strong desire to piece together own family history, websites like Find My Past, can grant you all the tools you require to make the search, a lot easier than spending hours searching through hundreds of files looking for something with an ancestor’s name on it…An example of a Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Service Certificate
Find My Past valuable records can easily help to trace the wartime experiences of the people who served around the world…From UK Navy, Army and Air Force service records and rolls of honor, to regimental lists and registers of Red Cross volunteers.In the records is possible to find occupations, nearest relatives, and origin cities for the ancestors, as well as the signature of each person, providing a rare glance of an ancestors’ handwriting.
The very important records are available to search from different categories, such as Census records, BMD records (where and when the World War One ancestors were born, married and died), Births & Baptisms (a collection of parish baptisms, marriages and burials), Immigration & Travel (passenger lists, passport applications and other travel records), Military Service & Conflict records (from WWI, WWII, and many other conflicts) and Newspaper records (Thousands of regional newspapers and wartime press reporting).
