When you start digging into your family's background, you never know what you'll find. I just found untold stories about my ancestors and you can too, all for free at TryAncestry.com.

Right now, Ancestry has just released content that's never before been available online in the U.S. Exclusive to Ancestry, it's a new collection of wills and probate records from all 50 states spanning 200 years.

And, only until Monday, Ancestry is giving Komando.com visitors free, unlimited access to this new collection at TryAncestry.com.

I found my 7th great-grandfather's will from 1776! Valued at $89 today, I learned that he left a majority of his estate to his wife and then cashed out a portion that he split evenly to his six children. I even saw the list of his estate, which included his home on 33 acres of land, two pipes, a tin lamp and several animals.  Plus, I also saw his signature on the notarized will. It's truly amazing!

I'm happy that I know this interesting fact and many more. I like to share them with my son, too, so he'll know more about where our ancestors came from. But, even if you don't have these types of stories, I encourage you to research and dig up facts about your family.

I want you to go to TryAncestry.com. This incredible, never-before-seen collection is free to search, but only until Monday (Labor Day). Get birth, marriage and death records, which are also open for free.
