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.

  1. Can you let us know which are the records that you added from Hungary?
    More than two years ago we requested if it was possible to add from Kapos-Szekcső
    birth 1903 in advance due problems that we have to obtain film from USA, so we would like to know about the last actualization: we did not see any change on this records through Internet.

  2. Why put the 1911 Canadian census on familysearch when it has been free for people to view for years at http://www.automatedgenealogy.com

    Why such an overkill and duplication of free records that are already available? Why not release records that people need and quit hoarding records that have been indexed and arbitrated for months now.
