New Free Historical Records on FamilySearch: Week of 26 May 2020

I am trying to get back into posting some of the articles I stopped posting during my Internet access problem. I saw this on FamilySearch – New Free Historical Records on FamilySearch: Week of 26 May 2020: https://media.familysearch.org/new-free-historical-records-on-familysearch–week-of-26-may-2020/.

I trimmed it down a lot as the article was a lot longer. I cut it down to keep the article to under 600 words. For the U. S. records, use the above link and search for the state(s) that interest you.

FamilySearch added 1.2 M new, free, historical records this week to United States collections including 800K from California. World collections added church, civil, and tax records for American Samoa, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, England, Finland, France, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Niue, Peru, Puerto Rico, South Africa, and Sweden.  Additional United States records were for AZ, DC, FL, GA, HI, ID, IN, IA, LA, MI, MN, MS, MT, NE, NJ, NY, NC, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TX, UT, VA, and WI.
