census_image_4.27.10.pngArchives has worked with FamilySearch to provide access to millions of records from their U.S., U.K, and Canadian collections. Both members and non-members can access these records by simply running a search on Archives.com.

FamilySearch.org, one of the leading family history resources, has digitized and indexed hundreds of important vital, census, immigration, and military collections, helping to preserve and ensure access to many millions of historical records. There are two ways to find FamilySearch records on Archives.com:

  • If you're a member - log in to Archives.com and run a search. You'll notice the FamilySearch results towards the bottom of the page.
  • If you're not a member - visit the Archives.com homepage and run a search. Your search will bring back matching results from FamilySearch, as well as other leading family history resources.
If you'd like to learn more about a particular record, click the search result to see all of the details. Fields may include name, date of birth, place of birth, mother name, father name, residence, etc. If you're logged in, you can view a scan of the original image within Archives by clicking the "View Original Image" link (when available). The Archives image viewer will allow you to preview the image, and zoom in or zoom out depending on your preference.

Now, with one easy step, users can search Archives AND millions of additional records from FamilySearch. We'll continue to work with FamilySearch to provide access to even more records in the near future, so look for updates on this soon!
