  • Mexico: Aguascalientes Catholic church records, 1616 to 1961
  • Netherlands: births and baptisms, marriages, and deaths and burials
  • Philippines: marriages

US additions include San Francisco-area funeral home records (1835 to 1931) and updates to the databases for the 1820, 1850 and 1880 federal censuses, as well as 1850 slave and mortality schedules.
