I just saw that and was going to post.  Exploring the records is completely free – just create an account by entering your email to start your search.

I just noticed this. I guess I've got a lot to look through.

Hmmmm.  I THINK I have an existing Ancestry account (password is forgotten...), but I did NOT see anything about the "free access" on the front page of their site.  Is everyon else just waltzing in with no troubles???

Thanks...

I just tried the link to the post about: "Ancestry has free access..." but all I got was the same old Ancestry pages for "14 day free trial" or "Join now." When I've seen things like this before...if you do a search, they will show you what they've found, but to see it, you have to join or pay. Has anybody actually gotten to see 'real' "free" information? (and what link did you use?)

Thanks for this question, James.  I had exactly the same experience.
If you're stuck at home, maybe this would be a good time to take advantage of the 14-day free trial.
