Just received from MyHeritage this morning.
In honor of Memorial Day, MyHeritage is offering free access to all military records on MyHeritage from May 20–26, 2020.
Many of us may have a relative or ancestor who served in the military. We invite you to pay tribute to these heroes and honor their legacy by learning more about them through military records.
The MyHeritage collection consists of 57 million records and includes draft, enlistment, and service records, pension records, and other military documents from North America and around the world, dating back to the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century.
Please use and share this video.
We’re also hosting 2 Facebook Live events about military records in the coming days:
