Family History Research Hints and Tips

Georgia, Ohio, Texas and Washington Death Records

I’ve spent quite a few hours on FamilySearch labs over the past few weeks gathering death records to add to the sourcing of records in my databases.  see http://www.familysearchlabs.org

If you haven’t visited the site for a while, you will document be surprised at the list of titles that have been indexed by volunteers over the past year or so.

There are new vital records postings for Norway, Cheshire, England as well as death records for Georgia, Ohio, Texas, Washington and West Virginia.

Looking for Vital records in the Czech Republic, France and Spain?  You may find what you are seeking in the Diocese records that have been completed in each of these countries.

U.S. state census records, federal census records, the 1930 Mexican census and other similar records are there at your fingertips too.

Ellis Island passenger records, Vermont land records and U.S. World War II Draft Registration Cards are waiting for your review. 

The cost to view all of these records?  ZERO.  You just have to have a valid e-mail address to log in.

The ‘moral’ cost to use this library?  Join in with the thousands of volunteers worldwide and help index records that will be posted on the site.

Go to the FamilySearch Indexing site and sign up.  You’ll enjoy completing a small batch of records at night while you listen to your favorite 1930’s movie or other forms of onscreen entertainment.

Becoming a volunteer indexer is a great way to both Pay It Forward and reap the benefits of the indexing yourself.  Everyone wins.
