Ancestry dot Com - Military Records - Limited Free Access

The military records held by Ancestry are freely accessible from now until the end of USA's Memorial Day; this year's Memorial Day is Monday, May 27.

I found this record of my great-uncle George Taggart who was born at The Poole, Ballyoglagh, Mosside, Co Antrim; George William is his son.

George emigrated in 1908 and I found his passenger record and other details at Ellis Island Records:

He visited his folks in The Poole in 1966 and he picked me up at the Greyhound coach stop in Eureka, California, in the summer of 1965.
