This just in from Dick Eastman who works at HisGen,
The following is an announcement from the New England Historic Genealogical Society:
Celebrate Patriots' Day with Free Access to a Premium DB at NewEnglandAncestors.Org
In recognition of Patriot's Day on April 18, the New England Historic Genealogical Society will offer three days of free access to one of our major databases at NewEnglandAncestors.Org. The name of the database and access details will appear in the April 20, 2005, issue of the NEHGS eNews.
The complimentary open access period begins Wednesday afternoon, April 20, and ends seventy-two hours later on Saturday afternoon, April 23. If you are not yet a member of NEHGS, but want to spend some time researching in one of our premium databases, this is your chance. Now that tax season is behind us, we invite you to spend some of your free time researching your early New England ancestors.
Patriots' Day is a unique holiday in Massachusetts, home of NEHGS. It commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord which took place on April 19, 1775. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts, Maine, and Wisconsin. In addition to its great historical significance, it is now known to many as the day of the running of the Boston Marathon. NEHGS will tie the holiday to this special database promotion and link genealogists everywhere to a piece of their New England heritage.
The easiest way to learn which database will be offered, and how to link to it, is to subscribe to the NEHGS eNews at http://www.newenglandancestors.org/education/articles/NEXUS_eNews/enews_main.asp. As soon as the eNews is sent next Wednesday afternoon, we will also place a link on our homepage at www.NewEnglandAncestors.org
