FamilySearch Record Search Update

The following announcement was made today that will be of help to ALL Genealogists.  I have added some comments and listed the new records in a more concise manner.
26 Million New Names Added for Costa Rica, France, Hungary, Mexico, Spain, and the U.S.

Twenty-nine new collections were updated or added this week at FamilySearch.org—with 26 million names and 1.5 million digital images!

The international collections continue to expand with exciting new additions for Costa Rica, France, Hungary, Mexico, and Spain. In addition, nine more indexes were added to the U.S. 1910 Federal Census collection—that means it is 37 percent complete! This project is moving along quickly.

There are now 428 collections from original source records available online at FamilySearch. Search all of these great collections for free online at FamilySearch’s Record Search pilot (from FamilySearch.org, click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot). [or just click here for Record Search]

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

None of this would be possible without the great contributions of many online 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 online with projects of personal interest, become a FamilySearch community volunteer at FamilySearchIndexing.org. Many hands produce great work. Thank you for your support!

Note: Waypointed images are those that you can browse through. They are not searchable by individual name, however, they are in groups based on location or some other grouping. They are high quality images of microfilm that have been tagged to identify sub-groups. They eventually will be completely indexed.
