FamilySearch added 24 million new names from England baptism and
marriage records to its pilot Record Search collection. The collection can
be accessed for free at

England Marriages - 4,924,366 (names) 1,787,802 (records)

The Record Search pilot is testing a new online digital image viewer and
search utilities that will be added to in the near future.

Paul is explaining that the new method for viewing document images (instead of microfilm) is being tested at the Record Search pilot area. Availability in the near future at's main site is eagerly anticipated by this researcher.
