FamilySearch Adds Collections from Brazil, Canada, England, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, and the United States

FamilySearch added an additional 6.6 million indexed records and images in the last two weeks. Included in this update are 15 new collections: 1 from Canada, 1 from Guam, 4 from Italy, 1 from Russia, and 8 from the United States. Among these collections are the China Collection of Genealogies from 1239 to 2010, the new Guam, Judicial, Land, Obituaries, and Census Records from 1712 to 2000, the Slovakia Church and Synagogue Books from 1592-1910, and the United States, New England, Petitions for Naturalization from 1787 to 1906. See the table below for the full list of updates. Search these diverse collections and more than 3.5 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.
