Free Databases on

What a great idea for a web site! lists all of the databases that are FREE on I assume that they will keep it up-to-date.

Looking through the list, the most notable databases (most with images of the records) are:

1) England, Wales, Channel Islands and Isle of Man census for 1881 and 1901.

2) England and Wales Civil Registration (Birth, Marriage, Death) indexes, 1837-1983, and 1984 to 2004.

3) 1880 US Federal Census Records

4) World War I Draft Registration Records

There are many more, in categories of US, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Other countries, Surnames, and Research Guides and Tools. Go browse through them all at

You might add it to your Favorites or Bookmarks and try to visit every week or so to see what freebies have been added.
