  1. I have original copy of Robert Albin’s will dated 1892, St. Louis Mo. Son of Mary Albin,brother of Adam and Dr. E.R. Albin. Will send to direct descendant if wanted.

  2. Why is it so difficult to get an account with Family Search? Do you have to be a member of the LDS church? In the past I was always able to look up things like baptism records but that seems impossible now.

  3. The Spanish came to America first (supposedly, discovered it), but it is difficult in the US to find information regarding records or archives about them. I have found that ancestry classes refer to French, English and German archives, but not Spanish. Why is that?

    1. I suspect that the answer may lay with the part of America that the Spanish landed and stayed in: the south. As I recall the south was fought over by the Spanish, Portuguese and British. Eventually (something tells me about 150 years ago) the British backed out, supporting the Portugal to dominate the east and Spain to dominate the west. It is difficult to be certain which of the two were the most vicious, for they both had a policy of murdering the indigenous people while importing African slaves.

    2. The Spanish places of discovery only extended as far north as Mexico. They discovered Central America and South America only, with a possible brief reconnaissance to Florida. By 1497, Henry 7 of England sent John Cabot, an Italian, to the new world, and he discovered Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and the St. Lawrence River for which he was paid the equivalent of $50. It wasn’t until 1534 that the King of France took notice and sent Jacques Cartier to present Quebec. That’s the discovery of North America — no Spanish.

  4. I can not find proof of my parents marriage. They are John Baptiste Camire and Johanna Elizabeth Kleber. They were suppose to have been married May 22, 1940 in Maryland. I have searched Maryland and all the surrounding states but no such marriage. My mother was from Moonachie, NJ. Date of Birth June 6, 1941. My father was from Quebec and St Johnsbury, VT. Date of Birth October 1, 1918.
    I have tried the LDS Geneology Library in Salt Lake City and they were unable to find anything after going thru multiple personnel’s help.
    Where else do I look or ask for help???

    1. Hello Joseph, Do you have confirmation on your father’s birthdate? Do you know your grandparents’ names? Aristide & Marie, perhaps? I know of a Jean Baptiste Camire born in Ontario in 1903.

    1. Hello Beckwith! I’ve notified a records specialist about your request; they should be getting back to you shortly.

    2. FamilySearch’s France collection is expanding quickly right now, as FamilySearch gets rights to publish images and indexed records online for the first time since the microfilms were created. Each department (including the departments that make up the region of Lorraine) will be published as the rights are granted to FamilySearch. Until then, some of the departments have searchable indexes on their websites, although usually only available to be searched using French language search terms. There are also microfilms for specific parishes and civil jurisdictions available through the FamilySearch catalog or a Family History Center.

  5. When will additional images of Jewish records from Vienna, Austria be placed online ? The current availability is only to 1911, with some gaps in previous years. Can records up to 1917 be made available, as well as Sephardi records, and from some of the smaller register books ?

    1. Hello David! I’ve notified a records specialist about your request; they should be getting back to you shortly.

    2. It appears the published Jewish records from Vienna, Austria up to 1911 are the extent of the project the archive allowed. We did the digital imaging there in 2011, and those were the years that the archive allowed FamilySearch to digitize. Additional digitization will be needed to add records to the published project online.

  6. The Find a Grave used to take us right to the cemetery and see the grave stone & information. Now it doesn’t take me there – how do I get the information I need???
