I thought it stated that the Fold3 web site had free access to the civil war records this month. I created an account and found a relative there BUT I was UNABLE to view his record.

Hi, Rick, the free access is for Civil War Confederate records. If your ancestor was a Union service member, or if the record you were trying to view wasn't for the Civil War at all, you won't be able to view it. If you still believe that the record you need was covered by the free offer, you can contact Fold3 at http://www.fold3.com/contact/?subject=Support or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/foldthree
