Ancestry.com: New England Family History Comes Alive with 220 Million New Records! Free Access Through July 21. New England Nocks, This Is For You.
We are very excited to announce we have added more than 220 million historical New England records to our existing database creating the most comprehensive collection of New England records available online!
Included in the new collections are birth, marriage and death records for hundreds of millions of residents in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, as well as images, diaries and articles from Colonial times to the 1980s.
Over the past few months, we have spent more than 10,000 hours digitizing and indexing historical records from the region in order to make them easily accessible online. The new records reveal countless facts of people from the region, from population to job growth, while also bringing insights into the life of notable New Englanders.
While the new records will help people discover their family’s New England history, they also shed light on what life was like for the typical New Englander in various periods of the region’s history.
