Updated International Genealogical Index
A new version of the International Genealogical Index is now available
on the FamilySearch Internet Genealogy Service (FamilySearch

received since the last release in January 2000.
Regular updates. The index will be updated as new information is
received. Note: There are no current plans to update the International
Genealogical Index on compact disc.
Individuals linked into families. Some individuals are linked into

submissions are now displayed and can be used as search criteria.

surname and state, and more types of events, even across regions. The
processes used to find individuals in spite of spelling and other
differences in the name have also been improved.
