new 3-day free Ancestry.com access offer

Post by David Douglas » Wed Jun 20, 2007 8:04 pm

I've just received news that there's another 3-day free Ancestry.com offer (via Ancestrylibrary.

You have to go via this link:


http://www.ancestrylibrary.com/security ... sfn=&gsln=


and either register or use an existing login name. I used the same login name that I've previously used for a 3-day free access offer, so there doesn't appear to be restrictions[/url]

Hi David:

This didn't work when I entered the website posted above. I tried the HELP option and this is the message displayed.
Ancestry Library Edition is a new genealogy research tool that provides library patrons instant access to a wide range of resources for genealogical and historical research. Ancestry Library Edition includes records from the U. S. Census; military records; court, land and probate records; vital and church records; directories; petitions for naturalization; passenger lists and more!

Ancestry Library Edition is not for home use. To access this database, please ask for more information at your local library.
Has anyone else had success, or is it just me?

Hi Frances, I accidentally received three free days about a fortnight ago, going through <ancestry.com> but cannot check on the continuing offer as they "know" me now too well!
I did a marathon of searching both in the UK and USA censuses and found some useful info. but it could have been more.

But then it shouldn´t be too easy....... :wink:

Guid hunting,

Thrall

Me neither Frances, I would kill for a free three days at this moment but it did not work for me. I entered my user name and password several times then gave up. If I won the lottery it would be the first thing I would purchase. That's a bit sick isn't it!

Thanks, Thrall and Lizzie. So it's just not me that can't access it. Maybe I fall into the same category as you, Thrall - :shock: 'they know me too well'

Sorry about that, Frances and Lizzie.
Can Ancestry.com read the IP number of the computer used when one logs on? If not, do they depend on info. that one supplies voluntarily to identify the user? Not that I was suggesting any sort of deception....... :wink:

Use a proxy and it works just fine so I reckon the answer is yes.
