Have you heard of the website Find My Past?? Yes or No now is a great time to get to learn more about them. From mid-day today til mid-day Monday they are letting you search their world records for free. Now I am personally going to take advantage of this opportunity. I have played around a little with this site but nothing major. I want to see what they have to offer. Are they similar to Ancestry.com? Do they have the same records? Will I be able to find more?
So doing a search for my great grandfather who came to America from Italy produced the following results.
As you can see the first 3 results are extremely similar (the last name was spelled in correctly upon arrival and has been that way since.) I already have these records and have had them for a long time. The rest are just letters.
I will keep searching and share with you my results.
