FamilySearch Now Available in 30 Languages
FamilySearch, a popular free website for collaboratively building your family tree and making new family discoveries, is now available in 20 additional languages—30 total. The additional languages will enable FamilySearch to expand its free offerings and fun experiences to more customers worldwide. The latest 5 languages FamilySearch has added are Fijian, Albanian, Czech, Norwegian, and Mongolian.
FamilySearch customers will now be able to create free accounts, build family trees, explore billions of images of historical genealogical records, and add family memories and artifacts in any of 30 languages. FamilySearch's popular Family Tree mobile app will also be available in iOS and Android if the available languages are supported on a user's device.
Steve Rockwood, FamilySearch International’s CEO, said, “Expanding FamilySearch into additional languages is giving us the opportunity to reach more of our audience worldwide and to enrich their ability to make fun, memorable family discoveries and connections.”
How It Works
Anyone visiting FamilySearch.org with a web browser set to one of the new languages will be able to automatically navigate the site in that language. Otherwise, users can easily select their preferred language from the list of choices in the site’s language setting.
FamilySearch receives over 20 million visits per month and is a great place to build and share your family tree and expand family connections using its growing collection of 14 billion records.
