About Fold3Fold3 is an offshoot of Ancestry.com that specializes in helping members find information about the military histories of their family members. The company offers more than 438 million records and lets you search through images as well.
As a membership site, you create an account and link the information that you find back to that account. When you become a paid member, you can share the information that you find with others and even create a photo gallery of images you found of your relatives.
Fold3 lets you browse records from major American wars, including the War of 1812, World War II, Korean War and modern wars. You will also have access to records of what happened to your relatives after they left the military.
When you start out, you can simply enter your name and start tracing your heritage. Fold3 lets all new members try out the site for seven days before becoming a paid member. If the paid packages are out of your budget, look for promo codes.
Giving Assistant has coupons for Fold3 and other similar sites that let you learn more about your family history. The site will use its partnership with Feeding America to give back to other families.
