New Historic Brazil and Honduras Records Online
Six Additional Country Collections Also Updated

More digital images poured out of the FamilySearch pipeline this week—over 2 million, in fact. Historic record collections for 8 countries were updated: Brazil, Chile, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Switzerland, U.S., and Wales. The biggest winners were Brazil and Honduras. More than 1.7 million images were added to the Brazil Civil Registration collection, with records from 1870 to 2009. And 346,000 church records were added for Honduras. These birth, marriage, death, and church records are very valuable because they usually include multiple generations in a single document. See the table below for details of all the updates this week. You can search all of the record collections now for free at FamilySearch.org.
If you are enjoying the steady stream of free records added weekly, please consider “giving back” as a FamilySearch volunteer. You can start and stop volunteering at any time. Find out more at indexing.familysearch.org.
