Press Release from FamilySearch
Eight new searchable collections were updated or added this week at FamilySearch.org—millions of new free images and records.
This week the complete name indexes for the states of Alabama, Colorado, and Illinois were published online and can be found at FamilySearch’s Record Search pilot (http://pilot.familysearch.org/, click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot) or Beta.FamilySearch.org. http://beta.familysearch.org/
The Delaware state birth records, 1875 Minnesota State Census, and Illinois, Cook County birth records were also added.
Also released was a digital image collection of church records from Litomerice, Czech Republic—60,000 images! Consumers will see these types of collections more and more online as FamilySearch digitizes microfilms in its Granite Mountain Records Vault. Instead of a microfilm reader in a local family history center, patrons use FamilySearch’s image viewer online to search these high quality digital collections—and they are accessible 24/7.
