300 Million Names and New Tools Help Genealogists


New Resources and Tool

for Family Historians

28 April 2010

Salt Lake City, Utah—FamilySearch International announced today that it has posted an additional 300 million names to its huge family history database. The names come from extracted original sources and include many collections that have never before been available online. The move bolsters FamilySearch's earlier announcements regarding ongoing efforts to digitize the billions of genealogical records stored in its Granite Mountain Records Vault near Salt Lake City, Utah.

The names can be found on the beta.familysearch.org Web site. That site and several other online tools and resources, can be accessed at labs.familysearch.org.
FamilySearch intends to migrate these resources to its main FamilySearch.org Web site later this year.
