At the recent National Genealogical Society Conference, announced the addition of 10 million new records to the U.S. marriage collection with nearly one million never before published names that can only be found on Quoting from the blog,
This installment of new marriage records is part of our effort to digitize and publish the single largest online collection of U.S. marriages in history. When complete, the collection will contain at least 100 million records and more than 450 million names from 2,800 counties across America. 
The release occurred at the start of the 2016 conference of the National Genealogical Society (NGS) held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. As part of an exclusive agreement, all members of NGS enjoy access to Findmypast as one of the benefits included in their society membership. 
While the US marriage collection at Findmypast includes marriages from nearly every state, this installment includes significant additions from Indiana, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Maine.
In the future, indicates that they will release millions of marriage records every quarter and they intend to complete the project by 2017.
