  1. I check for new USA databases every few days to see what new records that have been done for each state, and I noted that today it has 858 records for the United States and a few days ago it was about 108? ( don’t know exact number) and so where is the over 200 records disappear to in a few days. Like I said, I follow the number of databases added every few days and there is over 200 USA records not there.

    1. Kath, FamilySearch is, and always will be, free to its users. You do need an account to search the records on the website, but the account is free. I hope this helps!

  2. If you are starting to compile your family tree the best advice is to work backwards in time. Start with a person whose full name you know, together with identifying details such as place and date of birth, marriage or death. You will usually find tracing a Scottish line of descent back to 1855 fairly straightforward but going beyond 1855 can be more difficult.
