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.

One Comment

The appearance of the index for 1890 NY NY Police Census is absolutely great, as most of it still exists and is a substitute for the 1890 US census of the city — but — it would be so much more useful if the images were linked. Is there any infomation – will images be added soon ?
