Comments on New Records On
Quoting from the above blog post from,
New archived records from around the world are published on FamilySearch every week to help you find your ancestors. This week, nearly 8 million new records are available from France and more from Sweden, Austria, Montana, Pennsylvania, Luxembourg, and the Czech Republic.
This work of adding new records goes on week after week and the numbers of records have now passed beyond comprehension. These particular records are going into the "Historical Record Collections" and are searchable by entering a name. However, the number of "unindexed" records and relatively unannounced records also continues to increase. There are now, as of the date of this post, 746.3 million digital images published only in the FamilySearch Catalog. According to, the total number of historic digital images published online is about 1.26 billion. This means that about 60% of the records available from FamilySearch are listed and viewable in the Catalog and not available by looking in the Historical Record Collections.
