At the end of June I had a blog entry that talked about the Partnership between the NSSAR and Ancestry.com. Ancestry.com had announced a new collection of records, the Application files of the NSSAR members. All applications that were made to the NSSAR prior to 1970 were digitized and added to the Ancestry.com collection. One of the "Gotcha's" for this new collection is that you can not use the normal print or save image features that are found on Ancestry.com. Instead, you are directed to the NSSAR website to request a Record copy of the application.
The Collection had free access from June 30 2011 through July 4th 2011. As SAR webmaster I was very interested on how the potential for a large number of visitors from Ancestry.com would affect the SAR website. In my previous post I indicated that I would let you know how it went, so here we are.
