Forget the end of summer-start researching this Labor Day weekend

For this holiday weekend, Ancestry.com and AmericanAncestors.org are providing free access to select collections. You can check out the sites directly or read more about it from the Genealogy Insider.
At Ancestry.com, their new probate and wills collection, launched September 1st, is included. This is a massive collection which every genealogist should learn to use. Keep in mind the collection is "indexed" but it is only partially indexed. You will need to browse many of the records to find what you need. This is no different than what you would have had to do with the microfilm records. Now you can access the records at home, any time, in your bunny slippers.
