Update on the Size of the Historical Records Collection at FamilySearch.org

 When you click on Search in the Historical Records collection at https://familysearch.org/, you are looking at:

  • 3.5 billion searchable names with
  • 1 billion images indexed.
  • There are about 200 million indexed names published each year.
  • There are about 35+ million new images added each month (yes, that is each month!)

(Statistics from The Ancestry Insider 10 May 2013  http://ancestryinsider.blogspot.com )

Wow – and we have to say “Thank you” to those volunteers helping with the Indexing.  How great it is to have free access to all these Family History records!  Indexing increases the Historical Records collection!
