For those of you living in the US and embarking on a serious search of your ancestors who left Europe for the USA, you won't find a better resource for tracing your roots than Ancestry.com. They provide their users with the best and most valuable family history content available anywhere and are the largest online resource for family history information. Their site, which has one new database added each day, contains 3,500 databases containing well over 1 billion names.
Ancestry.com has begun the massive undertaking of scanning 24 million WWI Draft Cards. The initial post contained 100,000 images from the state of Pennsylvania. They will continue posting 100,000 images a week until the project is complete. The draft cards are as detailed in information as they are comprehensive in scope. Possible the most exciting news is that Ancestry will not be making a new subscription of this collection but rather will be adding this to the U.S. and Canada Collection. They feel that the best way to promote this new collection is by selling it as an added bonus to the U.S. and Canada collection. This will be especially helpful for the first little while when the bulk of the images are not yet complete.
