The names of 300 million people have been added to the database at FamilySearch, the world's largest collection of genealogical information.

A huge update of 300 million names has gone online at FamilySearch, it has been announced. The records, which include census returns, certificates of births, marriages and deaths and military and court documents, are all free to browse and span the US and some parts of Europe.

Among the newly-indexed records are:

  • Deaths and burials in Washington, DC between 1840 and 1964
  • Utah marriages from 1887 to 1966
  • Wales births and baptisms 1586 – 1907
  • Isle of Man deaths and burials 1844 – 1911

The new additions are now available to browse through a special beta site, with further integration into the main FamilySearch website expected over the next couple of weeks.
