FamilySearch Records Update 9 Feb 2012

The following is from FamilySearch.


FamilySearch Adds Free Records from 21 Countries 

Italy, Sweden, and U.S. Collections Enjoy the Largest Additions


FamilySearch added another 30 million new, free records online (16 million indexed names and 14 million browsable images). Totally new collections from Canada, England, Germany, Italy, Micronesia, Slovenia, and the United States can now be searched for free. Millions of new U.S. birth, marriage and death records, and over 9 million church records from Sweden were also added. Find your ancestors now at  FamilySearch.org.

Searchable records on FamilySearch.org are made possible by thousands of volunteers from around the world who transcribe (index) the information from handwritten records to make them easily searchable by computer. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the amount of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about how to help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records as an indexer at FamilySearch.org.

FamilySearch International is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer–driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter–day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history. To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch has been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years. Patrons may access FamilySearch services and resources free online at FamilySearch.org or through over 4,600 family history centers in 132 countries, including the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
