Always new records on Pilot.FamilySearch.org

During the past few years The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been involved in a huge project to digitize all of the more than two million microfilm rolls in the Church's vast archives. In addition to the project to digitize the records, thousands of volunteers around the world are helping to prepare indexes of the digitized records. Presently, the digitized records and indexes are being made available through a Web site at:

The quality of the images exceeds that of any previous scanned images, especially those of the U.S. Census records. The search engine is adequate and gives good results. You may wish to check this site from time to time as new images come on line about every two weeks.
