"When I was contacted by WorldVitalRecords.com I recognized immediately the benefits of this partnership. The Familias-Argentinas.com.ar database has a lot of family data that branches into North American family records. WorldVitalRecords.com will be the key to reach them and to develop those links," said Francisco Fernández Bell Fano, President, Familias-Argentinas.com.ar.
Fernández Bell Fano started the project in an effort to learn more about his family. The project has now expanded to include more than 130,000 entries which are all connected to one another and not a loose list of individuals from different sources. This database is considered to be the largest genealogical database in South America.
"This is our first collection from Latin America. The archive is full of rich-relationship data that will continue to expand as Familias-Argentinas.com.ar builds its database," said Yvette Arts, Director, Content Acquisition, World Vital Records, Inc.
One of the purposes of the Familias-Argentinas.com.ar database is to collect names of individuals who are blood or legal related but the main purpose is to help preserve the culture and history of the Argentinian people. After the Familias-Argentinas.com.ar database has been launched, it will be free to access at WorldVitalRecords.com for 10 days.
WorldVitalRecords.com currently has more than 300 databases in its international collection, including records from a variety of countries, such as Canada, Denmark, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Switzerland. The Familias-Argentinas.com.ar database is WorldVitalRecords.com's first database from Latin America.
"We are actively gathering data from all over the world, and this wonderful acquisition from Argentina represents the beginnings of our worldwide collection that we will launch later this year," said David Lifferth, President, World Vital Records, Inc.
