When talking to people this past weekend at the BYU Genealogy and Family Conference, I noticed that many of them were very anxious to receive records from Italy, Germany, Africa, Mexico, and various locations in Asia.
In fact one person I was talking to said that she had already found all of her ancestors in the United States and was simply waiting to get more information on some of her ancestors in Holland. Others would stop by our booth and say, “Do you have any records from Scotland?” We were really excited to hear this excitement for international records and also recognize that these resources are scarce and the need for these records to be available is great.
With the name World Vital Records, we intend to have data sets from all over the world! Of course we are not there yet, but I just want to make everyone aware that are plans are to acquire international records.
