FamilySearch Records Update 10 Apr 2012

The following is from FamilySearch.


1940 U.S. Census Images Now Part of the Exciting New Records Online
14 Million Additional Records for 19 Countries



FamilySearch has begun publishing images online from the 1940 U.S. Federal Census to engage the army of volunteers who have been waiting for the chance to begin indexing those names. To explore the digital images or to see which states’ images have been published, go to FamilySearch.org/1940census. FamilySearch also published over 14 million new, free records online for Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Estonia, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, and Spain. Volunteer to help index the 1940 U.S. census now, or search these diverse collections and 2.5 billion other records for free at FamilySearch.org.
 
Searchable historic records on FamilySearch.org are made available by thousands of volunteers from around the world who transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the amount of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about how to personally help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records as a volunteer indexer at  FamilySearch.org
 
FamilySearch International is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history. To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years. Patrons may access FamilySearch services and resources free online at FamilySearch.org or through over 4,600 family history centers in 132 countries, including the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
