Ancestry Library Edition Free Access Extended

“Word from the Ottawa Public Library is that free online access to Ancestry Library Edition through your library membership will continue through the end of the year. I’d imagine this applies to all Canadian libraries that have offered the service online this year.In case you don’t know, Ancestry Library is a collection of thousands of individual genealogy databases from many different institutions. It includes American, Canadian and U.K. sources as well as some for Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Canadian coverage includes major sources such as the censuses and much more.

No word as to whether the continued access is a forecast of growth of the second wave of the pandemic!”
