FamilySearch 2022 Genealogy Highlights

The following was written by FamilySearch:

What a year 2022 has been at FamilySearch! In 2022, FamilySearch.org added billions of new, freely searchable records to help its millions of visitors make important new family discoveries.

RootsTech 2022, hosted by FamilySearch, was a phenomenal success with more than 3 million joining the celebration online during the 3-day live event. Millions more have accessed free, recorded content from the conference throughout the year.

The cadence of gathering and publishing the world’s genealogical records online increased with a focus on select countries or homelands and a major US Census project. In addition, a new online volunteer tool was introduced, which, coupled with artificial intelligence and handwriting recognition technology, will vastly increase the searchability rate of non-English documents.

Read on to learn more about these accomplishments and new product features and discovery experiences added by FamilySearch in 2022.
