FamilySearch Record Updates

More new FREE records have been added to FamilySearch over the last month or so and are listed below. Hopefully you are finding these updates and links helpful in finding more information about your ancestors. Some of them take a little extra work on our parts because the databases have not yet been indexed, however, having access from the comfort of your cozy home is much easier than waiting for microfilm to come and then having to sit and scroll through it at a local Family History Center or Library.

FamilySearch can really use many more people to help index these valuable records and they NEED YOU! You can volunteer by registering at the FamilySearch Indexing Site.

Remember that some of these files are updates, some are browsable images and some are indexed.
