Bring Out Your Dead

Ancestry.com Death Record Challenge. Win and iPad!
You remember the scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

The characters are collecting the dead victims of the plague. They're about to collect another but the body says "I'm not dead!" and "I feel fine!"  I still burst into stitches just thinking of that movie.

Ancestry.com is asking you to bring out your dead as well. But in this case they want you to find death records not dead bodies.  Ancestry.com is featuring its death records during the month of October in the hopes that you'll be able to find more records about your ancestors.  Better yet, by doing what you love, searching for your ancestors, you'll even have the chance to win an iPad.

Head over to Ancestry.com and see what all the fuss is about. Learn something new about death records or check out the prizes they will be giving away nearly every day until October 31.

I'll be going on the journey along with you. I hope I'll find new records for some of my ancestors. And stay tuned because Ancestry.com has given me some 3-month WORLD (yes, I said WORLD!) memberships to give out. You'll be able to win a membership for yourself and a friend. Check back tomorrow for the details on the Roots & Rambles Ancestry giveaway.

The Roots & Rambles contest has started. See details of the contest here.

Disclosure: Ancestry.com is sponsoring Marian's Roots & Rambles for this promotion.

  1. Does that mean the death records are open for free viewing as when they opened up selected records on some recent holidays?
