Many Family History Records Becoming Available Online

Check out the new family History Archive as part of BYU's special collections. According to email I received from Denise Bound, the LDS Family History Library has "announced that it has begun the process of digitizing and making available on the Internet all of the Family History
books in their collection. About 5000 books have been digitized and are
available, and they have announced that they are adding about 100 titles a
week to the on-line collection. Copyright issues are playing a role in
determining the order in which they progress through this task; books out of
copyright are being done first."

Many valuable resources are already in this collection. Happy hunting!
