Ancestry is one of the few library databases that you cannot access from home with your library card. However, from April 7-14th, Ancestry will be providing free public access to its Civil War era records, including newly available records from the National Archives Civil War holdings. Don’t miss out on this chance to search millions of records, including the 1860 and 1870 U.S. censuses, free for one week. Save the date — and you just might find your own Civil War story. For more information, see http://www.archives.gov/press/press-releases/2011/nr11-103.html. To continue your search after the week’s up, you can always use Ancestry Library Edition for free by visiting any ASCPL location.
