The following press release was received from FamilySearch:

28 September 2011: New records collections from Australia, Estonia, Mexico and the United States can now be searched for free at FamilySearch.org. In addition, new records were added to Austria, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Honduras, Poland, South Africa, and Spain collections. Find your ancestors now at FamilySearch.org.

Searchable records on FamilySearch.org are made possible by thousands of volunteers from around the world who transcribe (index) the information from handwritten records to make them easily searchable by computer. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to help accelerate this great initiative to preserve and provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records. To learn more about the FamilySearch indexing program, visit indexing.familysearch.org.
