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.

FamilySearch International is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history. To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years.

Gee thanks. ‘Week of May 7″ just received this email May 13…in other words, the week is over!

    May 7 was Monday, the first business day of the week. FamilySearch apparently always refers to weeks that way. Their announcements about what has been added DURING the week obviously are not released until Friday, the day the notice was published here.

    In other words, the weekly announcements from FamilySearch always list “what we have added in the past 5 days.”
