Ancestry.com Commemorates Pearl Harbor

To commemorate the attack on Pearl Harbor, Ancestry.com is making some databases available for free, and has provided an instructional video on how to use them.

The databases are at Ancestry’s World War II U.S. Military Collection page. These are always available in our club rooms as part of our Ancestry subscription. But Ancestry is making them available now for free at least temporarily, so you may also search them from home. If you search and then try to view records, you may be asked to register, but this is free. You should ignore buttons offering a “free trial.” (This requires you to give a credit card.) Records available include enlistment cards, draft registration cards, and the Stars and Stripes newspaper.

To assist in your research, Ancestry has provided a 14-minute video in which Juliana Smith explains how to search World War II draft registration cards:
