  1. In your email you state that you’ve added Indexed records and images for Canada as well..but when I click on the link…you don’t mention Canada at all. Here is a copy of what was in your email:
    New Collections for May 2015
    FamilySearch has added to its collections more than 9.8 million indexed records and images for Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, Jamaica, Peru, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and the United States.

    1. Gloria, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have gotten several comments stating something similar and I will respond to each one once we find out what the problems is. What email exactly did you receive that had this title? (Others are free to respond as well) thanks!

  2. On your email it states that you have new records for Puerto Rico. However when I follow the link to these records, I do not see anything for Puerto Rico.

  3. Trying to locate parents of Henry S Davenport, born 1813 in Granby, Mass. Married to Sophronia Parker. Lived in So. Hadley, Mass. Buried in So. Hadley Falls cemetery

  4. Apparently there was an inconsistency between the email title that was sent out and the records that are available. I have sent out several emails to look into this, and once I have more information/an answer I will respond to each comment. Thank you for your patience.

  5. Since most of U. S. was at one time all MEXICO, why don’t”t you have it included? New Mexico was also Spain.
    Can’t find any thing past PATRICIO VALLEJOS born in the 1860’s , father of Marino.died in (1948) mother was Camila.

  6. You Stated “FamilySearch has added to its collections more than 9.8 million indexed records and images for Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, Jamaica, Peru, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and the United States”. I could not find any new records or images from Puerto Rico.

    1. Jorge, we have gotten several comments saying this. Just so that we can find and correct the error, can you tell us where you found that statement?

      1. You Stated “FamilySearch has added to its collections more than 9.8 million indexed records and images for Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, Jamaica, Peru, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and the United States”. I could not find any new records or images from Perú.

      2. It was in the original “invitation” to join, it is an actual cut and paste from your message. Don’t get me wrong I am very happy with what you have for Puerto Rico specially the search engine that is one of the best around for Double surnames, its just that you have no new records.

        1. Ok, thanks Jorge. I’m going to look into the source of that error and let you know if those records are coming soon, or if its just some sort of mistake. Thanks!

            1. Ok thanks! I’m looking into it, and I’ll get back to you once I find out why there was this inconsistency and let you know when those records will be available.

  7. Are you still updating Worcester County Massachusetts Probate Records. In 2014, you updated to the letter “K” or so. When will you add further records towards “Z”.?

  8. Mr. Eric Slaugh – Thank you for your notification.
    Visiting the link sent, I see there are 2,983,594 Indexed records and 0 digital records, for years 1516-1994 for Croatia church books. The indexed records, where can I see them ???. I was born in Parish of Moravce, Croatia and digital records for Parish of Moravce, Croatia are from 1674-1892. The added records, 2,983,594, do they show any records for Parish of Moravce, Croatia after 1892.
    Thank you for your help
