The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has completed the project to digitize all 2.4 million rolls of microfilm with the records of more than 11.5 billion people from around the world. These are now available to the public online.

For 83 years, the Church has been collecting and using microfilm records. All those are now available digitally to anyone who has a computer and internet connection.

Over 200 countries and principalities and more than 100 languages are included in the digitized documents. All types of genealogically significant records are included—censuses, births, marriages, deaths, probate, Church, immigration, and more. Now that the project is completed, it’s much easier for users to find members of their family tree and make personal discoveries within these records.   

If you want to check out these digitized microfilms for yourself you can explore FamilySearch’s free collections of indexed records and images by going to, and then search both “Records” and “Images.” The Images feature will let you browse digitized images from the microfilm collection and more. You will need a FamilySearch account to access digitized records—but signing up is completely free! Just follow this link: Create a FamilySearch Account
