FamilySearch: 8 June 2010 update

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

Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Spain, and U.S. Records Added

Twenty two (22) new collections were updated or added this week at FamilySearch.org—over 11 million new, free indexed names and images from original source records!


This week the complete U.S. 1910 Federal Census name indexes for Arkansas, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, and Texas were published online at FamilySearch’s Record Search pilot (FamilySearch.org, click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot) or Beta.FamilySearch.org.


Massachusetts death records and Minnesota probate court wills were also added to U.S. collections.


New international collections were published for Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, and Spain!


See the chart below for the complete list of all the newly added or improved collections.



None of this would be possible without the great contributions of many FamilySearch volunteers. These individuals donate the time and effort needed to make these collections freely available to FamilySearch patrons. If you would like to help by donating a few minutes here and there online with projects of personal interest, become a FamilySearch community volunteer at FamilySearchIndexing.org. Many hands produce great work. Thank you for your support!
