FamilySearch Adds to New Massachusetts Land Records Collection With More Than 5.7 Million Images

FamilySearch has added more than 7.3 million images this week from Austria, Brazil, China, Honduras, Luxembourg, Peru, Portugal, Switzerland, and the United States. Notable collection updates include the 5,766,135 images from the new U.S., Massachusetts, Land Records, 1620–1986, collection, the 337,367 images from the new Honduras, Civil Registration, 1841–1968, collection, and the 191,701 images from the new U.S., Hawaii, Honolulu Passenger Lists, 1900–1953, collection. 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.

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.
