Now I know it has only been a few days in to 2014, but I wanted to see what has been published this year for FamilySearch.org

2013 FamilySearch.org posted 770 new and or updated collections from January till December.  I could probably go back another full year, or maybe even pull up an old post of mine or another genealogist and see what 2012 provided us.

Depending on who you ask 770 might not seem like that big of a number, but if you take into account all the pages for each collection you are probably up in the billions of pages that were made available online.  Granted maybe not all the images have been indexed to date, but at least they are online and that is a start.  

Maybe next I will see what Ancestry.com has published in the last year.
