WorldVitalRecords is hopping again.
They announce that they have partnered with Quintin Publishing to put their entire CDROM library online. This is over 10,000 databases and is worth thousands of dollars if you were to buy each CD separately. This is a great library and includes such gems as Cassell’s Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland Volumes 1-6, England Maps, Ireland Maps, Scotland Maps, Handbook of Indians of Canada, Staffordshire pedigrees, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and Dictionnair Topographique Du Department de l’Eure just to name a few. They have just started adding this content to the site but will continue to add these great resources to the web over the next month or so.
They also announced a partnership with the Ellis Island Foundation to provide all passenger arrivals records to World Vital Records visitors. This information is available at other locations on the web but makes a great addition to the site by providing access to 25 million records.
They have also partnered with FamilySearch to provide free access to WorldVitalRecords from over 4,500 Family History Centers throughout the world.
And finally they have partnered with Godfrey Memorial Library to provide content that has never been available online before. They are just starting several scanning and indexing projects with Godfrey but you will start to see this data launch on the site as it becomes available.
Their social network for genealogists, FamilyLink is quickly growing. They now have 4,462 genealogists who have signed up from around the world. Be sure to check it out and sign up if you haven’t already.
All this is in addition to their already extensive collection of databases, International Records, SmallTownPapers and Everton’s Online Library.
Until midnight July 1st you can get a 2-year subscription for the price of 1, only $49.95. That’s $2 a month for information you won’t find anywhere else. Check out WorldVitalRecords for the new databases added daily.
