Keep updating your wish list as FamilySearch continues to expand its online historical records. New collection additions this week represent seven European countries.  Millions of records were added for the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, and Spain. Oh, and did we forget to mention that over a million new records were added for California, Maryland, Montana, Ohio, Texas, and Washington State? See the table below for more 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" by contributing a little time online as a FamilySearch volunteer. You can start and stop volunteering at any time. Find out more at indexing.familysearch.org.
