October 26, 2011

New collections Added for Guam, Japan, and Wales

New records were added to FamilySearch.org this week from Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, England, Guam, Hungary, Japan, Norway, the U.S., and Wales. Begin searching for 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 help accelerate this great initiative to preserve and provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records.
