Free access to major genealogical sites is just around the corner.

happyFamilySearch is moving full speed ahead in its plans to provide LDS Church members with free access to three major genealogical online sites. Free access to Ancestry.com, FindMyPast.com and MyHeritage.com was slated to be available sometime near the end of 2014 but it now looks like this will happen much sooner, as early as late summer. The project is a part of an ongoing partnership which allows the genealogical companies to work together to combine resources and gather historical records. This is very exciting news to LDS genealogists everywhere!

Thom Reed, FamilySearch’s partner marketing manager, explains what all the excitement is about.

“Partnerships between FamilySearch, Ancestry, FindMyPast, MyHeritage and other companies in the future will provide new opportunities for people to discover their ancestors (and) preserve and share those memories for generations to come,” Reed said. “By working collaboratively with these companies, FamilySearch enables individuals around the globe to have access to billions of more records and make more conclusions to their family trees than they would otherwise have been able to do.”

“Free access to two of the commercial family history websites is already available to the general public at more than 4,700 FamilySearch-owned family history centers and libraries worldwide. Ancestry and FindMyPast currently offer free access to all patrons at the centers. MyHeritage will begin granting free access later this year, Reed said.”
