FamilySearch sent a note to let us know about recent additions to its free Record Search Pilot site. Those include:
- records from Brazil; Mexico; British Columbia, Canada; the Czech Republic; and Hungary
- 1892 New York state census (some counties are missing from this census; see the FamilySearch wiki page about the collection for a list)
- Philadelphia, Pa. marriage indexes, 1885 to 1951
The Record Search site changed a bit earlier this month. From the home page, you can search across all collections. To find a specific database, click Browse Our Record Collections below the search form. On the resulting map, click the region you’re interested in searching, then click the title of the database you want to search.
On the individual database page, click About This Collection to go to the FamilySearch Wiki page on the database. There, you’ll see a sample record image and information on the creation, content, coverage and reliability of the collection.
