If you haven’t heard of the World Memory Project, it’s our joint effort with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to create the largest free online resource for information about individual victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. So far, almost 3,000 volunteers have added more than 2,000,000 records. The latest are USHMM: Czechoslovakia, Selected Jewish Holocaust Records, 1939–1941.

Our partnership with JewishGen is also bringing access to thousands of additional Holocaust records to More than a dozen databases have come online in October so far, including Germany, Jewish “Training” Centers, 1934–1938, and Poland, Jewish Children Survivors of the Holocaust, 1945.

North Carolina, Birth Indexes, 1800–2000, and North Carolina, Death Indexes, 1908–2004, each got an update.

You can learn everything from crime committed to time served in the Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, Jail Registers, 1876–1896, database.

And you’re in luck if your ancestry goes back to Connecticut, where church often knew more than state—or sometimes kept better records, anyway. The new Connecticut, Church Record Abstracts, 1630–1920, database will help you find them. Plus, we’ve added schedules from Connecticut to the U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850–1885, database.
