FamilySearch Has 5 million New Records of Free Indexed Names

FamilySearch.org now has over 5 million new records of free indexed names and images. These 48 recently published collections feature names from 19 different countries. The information on their pilot site and beta sites are now the same...to access the records go to: http://beta.familysearch.org/
and click on "all collections" to see what listing of records are available. Due to privacy laws, some records may not be displayed--just indices. The records that have a camera icon in front of the index name are available for viewing, printing and downloading.

Thank you to Dick Eastman and his Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter for alerting us to this addition of new records
