FamilySearch's new website for Archives

FamilySearch has a page for archivists and potential collections donors. This page gives summaries of the records services FamilySearch can provide to archives and government agencies.

It can be accessed via the About page of FamilySearch.org (a link at the bottom of the new layout).

FamilySearch Archives has a fresh, more inviting look. The most notable additions appear to be a map showing the number of digitization cameras in each country, and a form for collections agents to initiate contact with FamilySearch.

This is an improvement over expecting such people to wait for FamilySearch to solicit relationships or cause them to fight their way through the Support system that other questions go to.

What do you think of the new design?
