GenealogyBank free until Tues, 13 Feb 2007  
I wasn't able to attend the St. George Genealogy Jamboree this year, but Don Snow sent me the following information.

This morning at the St. George Genealogy Jamboree Tom Kemp of GenealogyBank.com announced that the site is free for anyone from now until Tuesday, 13 Feb 2007 and he said we could spread the word as far as we wanted. The site has loads of stuff on it, old newspapers, the largest obituary collection on the Internet, books, Government documents related to genealogy, and lots more. It's geared to U.S., not international, and is really a worthwhile site.

Here's the address and log in info:

http://www.GenealogyBank.com

Click on login. You will see two boxes. Enter the following information:
Email: promotion@genealogybank.com
Password: GenBank4U

BTW, he also said that if anyone wants to sign up for it to do it via Holly Hansen's MyAncestorsFound.com website since that gives a $10 discount ($80 vs $90 per year). But tell people to try it out for free this weekend and until Tuesday.

Thanks Don, I have really been wanting to give that site a try.

Signin Credentials Don't Work
Sounded like an interesting way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but the shame is that hte sign-in credentials noted above don't work. There is an error message saying they're having technical problems with this account.

Well - Looks like Milton Freeman was right again. There's no such thing as a free lunch.

Re: Signin Credentials Don't Work
Like the other poster said account information no longer works for that site. It was working yesterday, I will say their historical newspaper are soooo much easier to search than ancestry.com or newspaperarchive.com. If their server wasn't so poor I would probably join their site just for the historical newspapers alone.

Re: Login
I've experienced the same problems. Dick Eastman said GenealogyBank will be giving the free offer again, thorough his newsletter. Hopefully GenealogyBank will be better prepared for the onslaught next time.
