  • Now that the 1940 Census Community Project is complete (just a few states remain to be processed) FamilySearch’s next big volunteer indexing project is the US Immigration & Naturalization Community Project, which will make passenger lists, naturalization records, and other immigration-related records free to search on FamilySearch.org. If you want to participate, visit familysearch.org/immigration to learn more about the project.
  • British genealogy subscription and pay-per-view website FamilyRelatives.com has relaunched itself in an upgraded beta website. The site’s new “at-a-glance” design should help users easily find the site’s record collections.

    And in September, it’ll launch Family Tree Connect, social networking features such as photo-sharing, personal calendars, family tree building and cloud access.

  • FamilyRelatives.com has more than 850 million records from more a dozen-plus countries including Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, New Zealand, United States and the “Rest of the World” (ROW). Records include parish records; births, marriages and deaths; military records, trade directories and more.
