FamilySearch.org: 1 July update

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was received from our friends at FamilySearch.org. Please address all inquiries to support@familysearch.org.

1 July 2009

Twelve new collections were added to the FamilySearch Record Search pilot this week.
International collections were added for Argentina, Australia, Mexico, Netherlands, and Spain. New United States collections were added for Delaware, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Utah. Happy searching!

These collections can be searched for free at the www.FamilySearch.org Record Search pilot (click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot).

Special thanks to the growing number of online volunteers who help make these collections freely available by donating their time and talents to the FamilySearch Indexing program.
