Free Access to Immigration and Travel Records on MyHeritage - June 24-28, 2021

 I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


I’m happy to share that MyHeritage is offering free access to all immigration and travel records from June 24–28, 2021.

The Immigration & Travel records on MyHeritage encompasses 57 collections with 181 million historical records from all over the world. They include passenger arrival records, naturalization records, border crossings, emigration records, passports, and convict transportation records.

These records are often pivotal for genealogists, because discovering details on exactly where your ancestors were from can help you understand where to look for additional records on their childhood and their families in the old country. Normally, most of these records are free to search, but can only be fully accessed by MyHeritage users with a Data or Complete plan. From today until June 28, anyone will be able to access them free of charge. Read more about MyHeritage’s immigration and travel records in the blog post.

In addition, I’m pleased to announce the addition of 10.7 million historical records across two collections from the Austrian Roman Catholic Church: Austria-Hungary, Roman Catholic Indexes, 1612–1966 and Austria, Vienna Catholic Church Records Index, 1585–1918. These records span four centuries and are not available on other commercial websites, making them invaluable for anyone seeking to learn more about their Austrian heritage.

Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and gave received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
