The Ancestry.com World Archives Project gives people everywhere a unique chance to help save the world's historical records — millions that might otherwise be lost. Anyone can participate by accessing record images in our system and entering relevant names, dates and other facts to make the information searchable online.

As part of the Ancestry.com World Archives Project:

  1. All indexes will remain free to the public on Ancestry.com.
  2. Ancestry.com will donate copies of record indexes and images from the project to partnering government archives and genealogy societies.

Active contributors have benefits

  • Images associated with the indexes are available to active contributors free of charge on Ancestry.com when available.
