Got Ancestors from Costa Rica, England, India, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Spain, or the U.S.?The latest free collection updates might just have what you're seeking!
What a grab bag of records added this week! Let's see—for its online patrons' free viewing pleasure, internationally, FamilySearch added church records from Costa Rico and Mexico, Bishop's Transcripts and Poor Law records from England, Hindu pilgrimage records from India, municipal records from Spain, and civil registrations from Nicaragua and Peru. In the U.S., those with Arkansas and Oklahoma ancestors are going to have a proverbial field trip with the 500,000 new county marriage records added—and the indexes are linked to the original images! Additional records were also added for Maine and Texas. See the table below for details. You can search all of the record collections now for free at FamilySearch.org.
If you are enjoying the steady stream of free records added weekly, please consider "giving back" as a FamilySearch volunteer. You can start and stop volunteering at any time. Find out more at indexing.familysearch.org.
