Something FREE from Ancestry.com

Ancestry.com does have some free items to entice us to come to that website (in hopes of getting us to subscribe, but we don’t have to subscribe to use the free stuff).

The following was posted in the most recent Rootsweb newsletter (an all-free site which Ancestry assumed sponsorship of several years ago).

Ancestry Wiki
We would like to let you all know about a new Ancestry.com feature – the Ancestry Family History Wiki ! If typing in the page address, it is http://www.ancestry.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page.

The Wiki, along with other free resources, is available in the Learning Center. Currently you can review the Red Book and The Source with more to come when we are beyond the beta stage. When you are signed in with your RootsWeb or any Ancestry login account you will be able to edit and add content – you can do this by clicking on the Edit links on the right hand side of the page above each article. Previously published in RootsWeb Review: 9 June 2010, Vol. 13, No. 6

You can find other Ancestry free services at Ancestor Search Free (A listing of services, databases, and resources Ancestry makes free to anyone) at http://www.searchforancestors.com/ancestryfreebies.html. This link is also always available on the WCGS Bulletin General Links page.
