28 September 2009 – Family researchers seeking their Mexican heritage have two million new records at their fingertips this week with an update to the 1930 Census collection. There are also new indexes and images for France, Italy, Slovakia, Argentina, and the United States. These collections can be searched for free at the FamilySearch.org Record Search pilot (click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot).

Special thanks to the online volunteers who help make these collections freely available by donating a few minutes of their time or talents through the FamilySearch Indexingprogram.
