Update on MyHeritage Free Collection – June 6, 2020

As I mentioned on June 1, 2020 – Each Day of June, a Different Record Collection Will Be Free! – MyHeritage May 31, 2020, MyHeritage is offering a different free collection every day this month. I was able to see tomorrow’s City Directory Collection early for free – https://www.myheritage.com/research/collection-10705/us-city-directories. As a result, I checked out several relatives. To save the record, you have to do a trial membership. There is a workaround as you can print the record without doing the trial paid subscription. I chose to print the records as PDFs and saved to my computer. You will need a free account if you plan on searching the free collections. However, you don’t have to sign up for a paid membership. They do offer a free trial membership; just remember to cancel as they do auto-renew like many other companies.

The interesting side note is I found out my maternal grandmother was a nurse. I knew two of her daughters (my mother and her half-sister, Vera, from Grandmother’s first marriage) were nurses, but I didn’t realize Grandmother had been a nurse.

There are doing a good job of mixing U. S. and non-U.S. collections as free offerings. Some examples – Germany, Greece, Brazil, Australia, Palestine, Spain, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Hungary, England, Wales, Netherlands, France, Canada, some worldwide collections, and a couple of U. S. state collections. Did a quick check on Florida newspapers which will be available free on June 12th. Hoped to find obituaries for my uncle (Mom’s brother) and his wife, but not seeing anything. I know GenealogyBank didn’t have their obituaries when I had a subscription to it.
