During December, Fold3 is also allowing free access to over 113 million WWII records—including 35 million WWII draft registration cards. “Fold3 hopes these resources can help each user discover their own military ancestors and the brave lives they led,” Fold3 announced.

To honor the fallen and respect those who bravely fought, Fold3 is featuring the stories of twelve Pearl Harbor survivors, highlighting their genealogy, military service and personal histories. Four of the men are USS Arizona veterans.

Explore the Fold3 USS Arizona interactive virtual memorial as well for free on Fold3. Simply enter the name of the serviceman you are searching for, and the image viewer scans a photo of the Hawaiian memorial for the name, allowing you to find the name of a loved one on the memorial online.

The bottom of the website also offers a 10$ off coupon for an AncestryDNA test, for those looking to expand their genealogy research through DNA testing.

    I am unable to get access to the free info on Fold3. I tried a few times. It kept telling me that I had to pay for it. I even tried my email address and a password that I’ve used on that site before. I was told I wasn’t a member. (I’m not a paying member of the site.)

  2. As noted here already, this is completely bogus. All the usual content that is for Premium members only is still locked up. This is nothing but a marketing campaign to harvest email addresses disguised as a pro bono courtesy. I would not be surprised if the magazine is getting a kick-back for the click-throughs.
