30 million English deaths, burials and marriages added to FamilySearch

On 10 February FamilySearch added the following:
England Deaths and Burials, 1538-1991 15,078,612 records
England Marriages, 1538–1973 15,673,510 records

The general source information is "derived from digital copies of originals housed in various repositories throughout England." To find the specific source search the source film number in the Library catalog. Perhaps one day they'll make it a direct link.

Also added are:
England, Cheshire Non-conformist Records, 1671-1900 157,094
Wales Deaths and Burials, 1586-1885 1,296

    I wish that rather than adding more records, they'd do something about stabilizing the site. It's forever going down either briefly or for hours at a time (like last night, middle of the evening). And I'm having problems with an unresponsive script (when on my MAC)
