This Friday is Canada Day and that means, well, besides, backyard and cottage parties, hot dogs and hamburgers and gathering with friends and family which is a great all unto itself, it also means some great access to some online databases as well as some nice discounts.
This weekend two of the leading online databases are offering some free research time in honour of the Canada Day holiday.
Free Acess to AncestryAncestry.ca is offering free access from now until July 2nd, 2016.
Free Access to FindMyPastFindmypast also will be celebrating both Canada Day and July 4th with free access to their record collections. Their offer extends from June 29th until July 6th, 2016.
As a nice added bonus, a special webinar will be hosted by expert genealogist, Jen Baldwin, at 11:00 MDT, July 1st, in which she will be sharing essential tips and tricks for getting the most out of naturalization records.
