FamilySearch adds 15 Million Records to Their Beta Site; Blog article on Jews of Czech Republic

FamilySearch has added 15 million more indexed records and 2.5 million images covering 13 countries to their beta site: https://beta.familysearch.org/ Some of the US records are courtesy of Footnote.com. You can search by name or scroll down and browse by location.
Some of the records are an index only- while others have the image scanned in and can be seen.

For a list of which records have been added see Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter: http://tinyurl.com/2wcbdwn
