At Ancestry®, we aim to mobilise our global Ancestry family and products to build more connected and resilient communities and to empower the next generation of history makers.
For nearly a decade, AncestryClassroom™ has helped students learn more about themselves, navigate the world around them, and become more resilient. We do this by providing educators with access to classroom resources, professional learning tools and Ancestry historical record collections at no cost.
In an effort to reach more students globally, Ancestry is thrilled to expand access to AncestryClassroom™ to teachers, school leaders and students in the UK. More than 9 million students across the United States, Australia and New Zealand currently have access to AncestryClassroom™, and we are excited to support educators in the UK in helping their students personally connect to history, develop research skills, access original documents, and much more.
AncestryClassroom™ UK includes access to Ancestry’s World Explorer subscription at no cost, including access to all records (both UK and international) available on Ancestry, such as historical birth, marriage and death records, census records, parish registers, military records, employment records, immigration records and many more! Ancestry has partnered with Facing History & Ourselves — an organisation that uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate — to develop a robust collection of resources for educators which can be found here: https://ancestryclassroom.co.uk/k12/resources/.
Teachers, school leaders, and borough officials can sign up at https://ancestryclassroom.co.uk/k12/GrantProgram/ to receive access to AncestryClassroom. If you have questions, please email [email protected].
