Family Search Indexing Project

FamilySearch has released the following release:

From July 15-17, [2016] FamilySearch International and supporting organizations are coordinating the single largest gathering of volunteers online from around the world to help in the noble effort to save, and increase access to, the world’s genealogically significant historical records. With a target of 75,000 online volunteers for the weekend event and a stretch goal of more than 200,000, you and your network of friends and colleagues can make a real difference. Remember, every historic record tells the unique story of someone’s ancestor and helps make a personal connection. Until that record is easily discoverable online, that ancestor’s story and their place in the family tree, remains untold.

Please visit for information on the world indexing event and how you can participate this weekend.

It’s easy to become an indexer! If you have used records on Family Search to help find your ancestors this is your time to Pay It Forward. Will you help Family Search reach their goal of 50,000 indexers and arbitrators to submit at least one batch in a 24-hour period!?
