I am still finding that usage of the FamilySearch.org Partner Programs is just barely gaining traction among the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This seems surprising to me since the members receive free access to these subscription-based websites. Among the most useful of these websites is Findmypast.com. Many members of the Church have English, Scottish, Welsh, or Irish ancestry and Findmypast.com has the largest collection of records from these countries online.
Currently, Findmypast.com has begun digitizing Catholic Church records from the United States and from its early origin as British colonies.
As this graphic shows, there are now millions of records online and completely searchable for Catholics that lived in America. Previously, these records have been entirely unavailable online. In addition, it is important to understand that after Germans, Irish immigrants constitute the largest number of immigrants to America.
I'm certain that during the upcoming week or so I will once again find someone who has English ancestry and has yet to register or take advantage of access to Findmypast.com. To register for the partner programs go to the following link:
