On the right hand side of the page that opens from the url above,  see, in Military Records” which gives  you a list of the categories of military records in the free access offer. Clicking on any of the categories will get you to a search window for that collection. You can search all military collections by using the search form on the center of the page.

 

When you put in a name and the results return  a green “free” label will appear next to the record that is included in the free access offer. If the record is not available then an extract will appear. In the trial example I did,  I received some results with extracts only and others with both the extract and the original record. To save the record to your computer right click on your mouse and ” click save image as”. If it’s an extract do a copy and paste. If you have your tree on MyHeritage there is a “save record” that you can use to affix to your tree. At the bottom of the page there is a “cite this record” where you can copy the source information.

 

If you try to access the records that are not included in the free access offer you will be invited to subscribe.
