Immigration records update

U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Community Project Half-way to 2012 Goal of 30 Million Records

In August of this year, FamilySearch announced its next major U.S. community project-U.S. Immigration and Naturalization. The project will create an extensive, free, online collection of U.S. passenger lists, border crossing records, naturalization records, and more-invaluable to genealogy researchers. The online volunteer community is two months into the project and aiming to index 30 million records by the end of the year. Thanks to the contributions of over 85,000 volunteers, more than 15 million records have been completed already.
