Fun Facts About FamilySearch

FamilySearch has the largest collection of free genealogy records on the internet thanks to the dedicated work of thousands of volunteers. With the latest large release of 72 million records last week, FamilySearch has reached a very important milestone.  Volunteers have now transcribed over 500 million genealogy records online.
