What's Ahead at Ancestry in 2011

I just took a look at Ancestry's What's Ahead page and was impressed with the lineup of records that will be forthcoming in 2011. The collections that I saw that would be pertinent to research that I'm doing included:
  • Pennsylvania Marriage Records, 1700s - 1810
  • Tennessee Birth Records, 1869-1912
  • Tennessee Death Records, 1848-1959
  • Oregon Marriage Index, 1906 - 2006
  • Oregon Death Index, 1921 - 2006
  • New York State Censuses, 1915 - 1925
  • U.S. Census Agricultural Schedules, 1850-1880
  • Navy Muster Rolls, 1939-1948
  • U.S. Civil War Confederate Pension Applications, late 1800s-early 1900s
  • U.S. Civil War Union Draft Registers
  • UK: West Yorkshire & Dorset Parish Registers, 1700s-1900s
  • Sweden: Parish Birth Records, 1860-1937
  • Sweden: Household Examination Books, 1700s-1800s
  • Canada: Voter Records, 1935-1983

There are many other record collections besides these shown here and I encourage you to check them out. Also on this page you will find the databases released in 2010, a good review in case you missed any of them. Remember, too, if you don't have an Ancestry subscription that many libraries in the U.S. offer the Ancestry Library Edition (U.S. records only) for free at their in-house computers.
