Since this weekend is the Australia Day Weekend, Ancestry is given Free access to all Australian collections until Tuesday. These can be access through the following link: http://www.ancestry.com.au/cs/australia2016?o_xid=69400&o_lid=69400&o_sch=Email+-+Campaigns
I’m not sure if this only applies to those using ancestry.com.au, or not.
|*Terms and Conditions Apply: Access to the records in the featured Australian collections will be free until 11.59pm Tuesday 26 January 2016 AEDT. After the free access period ends, you will only be able to view the records in the featured Australian collections using an Ancestry.com.au paid membership.|
Also in honour of Australia Day, Ancestry.com.au is offering free access to Convict Records from 20 January 2016 for 11 days – to the 31st January 2016.
