FamilySearch adds over 25 Million World War One Draft Registration Cards!

March 29, 2012

FamilySearch added just over 34 million new, free records online this past week for Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Scotland, U.S., and Wales. Search these diverse collections and 2.5 billion other records now for free at FamilySearch.org.

Searchable historic records on FamilySearch.org are made possible by thousands of volunteers from around the world who transcribe (index) the information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. 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 personally help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records as a volunteer indexer at FamilySearch.org.
