AncestryClassroom Grant Terms and Conditions

May 1, 2023

Thank you for your interest in our AncestryClassroom™ Programme (the 'Programme'). Each day, users of the Ancestry® family of websites utilise our historical records to discover and research their family histories, and the goal of AncestryClassroom™ is to help students discover, preserve and share their own family history. If your school is granted access to this Programme, your students will be able to access classroom versions of Ancestry® from computers within the IP ranges you specify in your application, by visiting (the 'Programme Website').

Below are the terms and conditions (the 'Agreement') that you must read and agree to before applying for, being considered for, and being awarded access to the Programme Websites provided under the Programme.

You hereby agree to the following terms:

You will comply with all applicable laws, Programme requirements, and any other restrictions or rules that we may publish or otherwise communicate to you at any time.
