WorldVitalRecords free for three days (Select Titles)

Today I recieved word that WorldVitalRecords is offering three days free on selected titles.  I have personally never used the site, but it will give me a chance to see how they stack up against sites like, Footnote, ect.  I know they each have thier niche on what they are trying to provide.

Another great thing is that there is no Credit Card required to purchase the three free days, which means you wont have to be worried about canceling it before they take that monthly charge to your account.  This is what I wish some of the other sites would do with their "free trials".

Its great to see them offering the below titles:

Historical Newspapers

Through a partnership with Newspaper Archive, WorldVitalRecords is adding access to pages from a variety of newspapers from all over the United States, dating from 1759 through 1923. This collection features images of entire newspapers from the western frontier, the Midwest at the turn of the century, and the long-time standard of our nation’s news, “The New York Times” which includes over 7 million names. Newspaper Archive produces the largest historical newspaper database online, and the collection is fully searchable by keyword and date, and individual pages can be saved or printed.

Immigration Records

Living in a country of immigrants, ship passenger lists and other records documenting immigration can be an essential part in learning more about your family history. It is a thrilling experience to see their names transcribed on paper the day they entered this country through the Port of New York. Browsing and searching these passenger lists is a perfect way for someone to start researching their family history.

This record collection provides documentation of over 150,000 passengers who arrived on nearly 8,000 ships at one of the busiest ports in the United States, New York, from 1820-1832.


In partnership with the website, WorldVitalRecords is doubling its collection of digitized yearbooks. This collection features university yearbooks from the late 1800 to mid 1950’s. houses the largest collection of old college yearbooks on the Internet. Universities featured this week include Duke University, University of Oklahoma, Iowa State and the College of William and Mary.
