Ancestry.Com Updates regularly publishes a helpful list called “Genealogy databases posted or updated recently” with dates. This update covers May 1-15, 2010.

Out of 35 resources listed for May 1-15, 20 of the new ones are in German, and most are family histories.

New databases in French:

• Marriages in Marseilles
• Vital records for Alpes-Maritimes, a department in southeast
    France, including Cannes and Nice

New databases in English:

• Alabama Civil War Muster Rolls, 1861-1865
• Queensland (Australia) Passenger Lists, 1848-1912.

Nine databases have been updated, including:

• Obituary collections for the US, Canada, UK & Ireland, Australia,
    New Zealand, and the Caribbean
• New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
• US Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885
• 1880 US Federal Census
• Selected US Naturalization Record Indexes, 1791-1966.
The latter three are annotated as "Free Index."

This Ancestry update column will be posted periodically by Carol Magenau.
