Family History Archive

Family History Archive from BYU is a growing collection of digitized family-history texts, as of today numbering 4,726. What's great about the Archive is the variety of books available for viewing—not just the same old public-domain genealogies you'll find elsewhere, but also recent (sometimes scholarly) works that otherwise could only be tracked down offline.

If you click around the Family History Library Catalog, you may notice links to books in the Archive. As the Archive grows and FamilySearch evolves, this relationship is bound to be significant.
