Friday Finds and Follows: 7 November 2014

Last week, I skipped my Friday Finds and Follows post, as I felt like I hadn't made enough finds and follows to create a full post (I'm combining two weeks' worth in this post). Be looking next Tuesday for the return of Tuesday's Tips with an all-new article!

Note: Three major genealogical subscription websites have free access to all or part of their collections this weekend and/or through Veterans Day:

  • Ancestry has free access to its military collections through Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11. (details)
  • ArkivDigital has free access to its entire website November 8 and 9 to celebrate Sweden's National Archives Day. (details)
  • FindMyPast has free access to its entire website this weekend. (details)
