One of the best resources at FamilySearch is the indexes and document images available through their Historical Records Collection, which includes more than 3.5 billion names in 1,400+ collections from countries all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, England, Germany, France, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Hungary, the Philippines and many more. These are official records from governments and churches, including census records, marriage, birth, christenings, military, pension applications, death certificates, probate, land, etc.
Another fabulous resource FamilySearch provides is Family History Books, a collection of more than 100,000 digitized genealogy and family history publications from the archives of some of the most important family history libraries in the world. The collection includes family histories, county and local histories, genealogy magazines and how-to books, gazetteers, and medieval histories and pedigrees.
