I don’t know about you, but I for one am very thankful for Family Search.  They provide a rapidly growing collection of records for genealogists on a daily basis and best of all, access is free.  Some of the newest records to their collections include: Iowa Births, 1880-1935; Maine marriage index, 1892-1966, 1977-1996; Maine death index, 1960-1996; Michigan, Detroit Manifests of Arrivals at the Port of Detroit, 1906-1954; and U.S. World War I draft registration cards, 1917-1918 (they continue to add to this database).

If you would like to help with the indexing of additional records for Family Search, you can sign up here and test sample batches.  What a great way to help repay Family Search with their efforts!
