Ancestry.com Will Acquire Sweden’s Genline.se

Ancestry.com has announced an agreement to acquire Genline.se.  The deal should be finalized in July according to Ancestry’s blog.  If you have Swedish ancestors, this may benefit you!  New records available will include “a collection of Swedish church records that contain more than 26 million digitized pages of records spanning more than 400 years from the 16th to the 20th century.  These records consist of birth/baptismal, confirmation, marriage, death/burial, church ledgers and household examination rolls.”

Familysearch.org-Free Records and Resources from Around the World

Did you know that you can search birth, death, marriage, census, and many other records for free on familysearch.org

Once on familysearch.org, move the arrow over the “search records” tab and click on “records search pilot.”  Enter the information for the ancestor you are researching, or you may click on “search or browse our record collections.”  This will take you to a page where you may click on the part of the world that corresponds to your research.  You will get a list of available records you can search from that area.  This list includes birth, death, marriage, census, baptism, parish records, and more.

It is also important to note that record search is in pilot status-meaning it is currently under development; additional records are still being added.  You may even want to become a volunteer indexer.

There is a wealth of information available here.  Happy researching!
