FamilySearch Kicks Off 2011 with the Addition of 90 Million New Online Records

Includes 18 Million Digital Images from 13 Countries

No doubt family history enthusiasts will have a heyday looking over the latest collection updates! The 18 million free, browsable digital images are just a sample of what should be a banner year as FamilySearch continues to plug away at digitizing its massive microfilm collection for online access. U.S. researchers will be excited to begin poring over the 3 million new digital images of U.S. naturalization records included in this update.

Patrons will also find 72 million new, searchable, indexed records to search for free thanks to FamilySearch’s cadre of online volunteer indexers and agreements with Ancestry.com and findmypast.com. Findmypast.com’s index to the 1881 and 1891 England and Wales censuses and Ancestry.com’s indexes for U.S. border crossings from Canada to U.S. and Mexico to U.S. can now be searched free of charge at FamilySearch.org.
