New Databases Available thru Familysearch.org Pilot

The FamilySearch Record Search Pilot Site (http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#start) now searched besides a numbers of Federal Censuses some interesting databases:
  • Florida Deaths 1877-1939
  • Ireland Civil Registration Index 1845-1958
  • Michigan Marriages 1868-1925
  • Ohio Deaths 1908-1953
  • Ontario Deaths 1868-1925
These databases are the product of volunteers transcribing key information from records to searchable databases.

The Florida Deaths 1877-1939 is not the same as the Florida Death Index on Ancestry.com. This database includes information from the death certificates like parents; birth and death places and dates; spouses; and more.
