25 million new free records added for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Guatemala, South Africa, Switzerland, and the U.S.

There were 22 collections added or enhanced in the latest update. Many happy researchers will search eagerly through the 25 million new records in this update! The records can be found at FamilySearch’s Record Search(, click Search Records, and then click Record Search). Be sure to share the good news with family and friends.

See the chart below for a list of all the newly added collections.

None of this would be possible without the great contributions of many online FamilySearch volunteers. These individuals donate the time and talent needed to make these collections freely available to FamilySearch patrons. Find out more about volunteering at Thank you!
