FamilySearch Updates in March

It’s easy to overlook additions to FamilySearch collections. In March 206 indexed collections were added or had additions. For Canada, there were additions to a register of Chinese Immigration.  For England, additions were made to parish and Non-Conformist church records; Middlesex Parish Registers, 1539-1988 now has over 5.7 million entries. Three Irish titles have additions.
