Free Access to Fold3 and WorldVitalRecords with SCGS Membership

I was shocked to just discover that my Southern California Genealogical Society Membership includes free remote access to Fold3 and WorldVitalRecords!  Fold3 costs $79.95 a year and WorldVitalRecords is $89.95 a year for a membership. My membership to SCGS is only $35 a year, plus I get access to the Webinar Archive.  I initially purchased my SCGS membership to simply access those webinars.  Boy, have I been missing out on the full benefit of my membership.  I am encouraging everyone to get a membership to SCGS.  It just makes sense to the budget conscious genealogist.

Here's a list of what membership includes:
