Ancestry.Com Free Databases

Looking at free databases on, I see several interesting databases but most are already free on To test it out I tried the WWI Civilian Draft Registrations. I had to register which was easy enough (just had to give a name and email address), but only got an index and only 1 of 3 brothers came up. So it is not as complete as the pay database, but worth taking a look at.

Update: I just got my 1st Ancestry SPAM from signing up. If you want to try this be warned!!!

Family Roots Radio

An new genealogy internet radio show has popped up , hosted by Kory Meyerink. It is played on VoiceAmerica every Thursday at 1PM Pacific. To make things easier you can listen or download it and listen it at your convenes. I found the first two shows very interesting & educational.
