Title: FamilySearch is Still Open for Business
Snippet: For more than 120 years, FamilySearch (formerly known as the Genealogical Society of Utah) has been dedicated to gathering and preserving family records for everyone, regardless of religious affiliation and nationality. Their mission is to “help people connect with their ancestors through easy access to historical records”.
FamilySearch works with like-minded organisations and individuals who share their vision. Together, they have created an enormous online resource of records, digital images and indexes. These are all made available free to researchers.
The numbers for the organisation are staggering. Their collection contains more than four billion names from all over the world and they operate 4,745 FamilySearch Centres worldwide. Millions of people use their resources each year.
