New Historic Records On FamilySearch: Week of April 10, 2017



SALT LAKE CITY, UT—If you have French heritage, this is your week. FamilySearch has recently published over 3.3 million French Census records from 1876 to 1906. Also in this update are some large historic record collections from Argentina, The Netherlands, Peru, and Sweden. You can also find some newly indexed records from Brazil, Cape Verde, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland, and the United States. Search these new free records and more at FamilySearch by clicking on the links in the interactive table below. Find and share this collection update online in the FamilySearch Newsroom.

Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers 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 large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the world's historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/indexing.
