FamilySearch Adds to England and Wales Census, Italy, and United States Collections

November 8, 2012

FamilySearch added 7.7 million indexed records and digital images to its growing collection, with 637,695 images of marriage licenses and 1,623,576 new indexed records being added to the England and Wales Census of 1871. Also of interest are 1,465,175 new browsable images from the Como, Italy, Civil Registration collection and 2.4 million new records and images from all across the United States. Search these diverse collections and 3 billion other records for free at FamilySearch.org.

Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) 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 large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org.

FamilySearch is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history. To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years.
