Millions of Historic Documents from Microfilms Now Emerging Digitally Online

FamilySearch’s microfilm conversion initiative is beginning to sail. Over 12 million digital images from thousands of microfilm, representing 8 countries, were published online for free viewing this month. FamilySearch’s online image viewer makes it easy for online patrons to view the newest digital images from Argentina, Costa Rica, France, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and Spain.

This week the complete U.S. 1910 Federal Census name indexes for Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Missouri were also published online at FamilySearch’s Record Search pilot (FamilySearch.org, click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot) and coming soon to Beta.FamilySearch.org.

See the chart below for the complete list of all the newly added or improved collections.

FamilySearch plans on digitizing and publishing online the bulk of its 2.4 million rolls of microfilm—representing 132 countries. In addition, it is now capturing millions of new images each year digitally “at birth” from its 185 field camera teams worldwide. It all translates to a steady stream of new digital image collections for genealogy enthusiasts to anticipate and enjoy.
