FamilySearch Adds More Than Half a Million Index Records and Images to New Ireland Calendar of Wills and Administrations Collection

FamilySearch has recently added more than 2.7 million images from BillionGraves, Canada, Colombia, Ireland, Mexico, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, and the United States. Notable collection updates include the 544,966 index records and images from the new Ireland, Calendar of Wills and Administrations, 1858–1920, collection, the 731,428 index records and images from the BillionGraves Index, and the 452,357 index records from the U.S., Colorado, Statewide Marriage Index, 1900–1939, 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.
