FamilySearch.org reaches ONE BILLION IMAGES online!!!

That’s a VERY impressive milestone for the LDS and their wonderful FREE website!

And there’s no sign of them slowing down at all.  If anything, they’ll be adding MORE images online.

It took FamilySearch 7 years to reach 1 billion; they estimate it will be 3 to 5 years to reach 2 billion.  And it’s a mix of digitizing their 70+ years of microfilm (see below), and all-new never-available-before-anywhere brand-spankin’-new titles!

And they’re not alone.  Institutions and groups from small town historical societies to major universities have been busily (and often quietly) scanning their various documents and making them available online.

So, thank you LDS for pioneering the preservation, recording and sharing this incredible amount of family history material; both online and off!!!!!!

It’s also great news for me as well, being The Online Genealogist and all.
