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.

Thanks for the latest update we share this with our Area and FH folks. A question? Can this site also share news of the latest FS Tree and Memories app updates?

I just wanted FamilySearch, and maybe Paul Nauta in particular, to know how very much I personally appreciate being notified when new sources become available. It is a tremendous help to all of us who are trying to research several family lines all at once - or, indeed, just one family! You are doing a tremendous service and it is such a boon to all of us! Thank you!
