I haven’t been doing much work on my genealogy lately, so when I got an e-mail from Ancestry.com, I was only vaguely interested. Until I read the subject: “Class Action Settlement Benefit Notice.”
Seems that there was a class-action lawsuit against Ancestry, resulting in Ancestry giving one month of free access to all subscribers. I’m only subscribed to the U.S. Census Collection, but they have several other collections, including newspapers, records in general, and god knows what else.
And, for the entire month of May, I get FREE ACCESS.
So… despite prime gardening season approaching, I’m going to be going gangbusters with my genealogy during the next month, to take full advantage of $30 worth of records access for FREE.
I love class-action lawsuits.
