FamilySearch Indexing Is For Everyone

The genealogical records of the world are being digitized, indexed and posted in a dramatic scale.

We all need to help with the FamilySearch Indexing project to get the records online, available to everyone with no cost for those hosted on the FamilySearch site.

What led up to the wonders point in genealogical history?  Read the LDS Church article about the Scanstone project for some background on the project..

They need our help in the Indexing.  I’ve The work is easy and only takes a few minutes a day. You simply download a batch to your computer, do the indexing at your convenience and then upload the file and get another one. No pressure, no quotas. The average batch takes 1/2 hour to 1 hour…. Your indexing speed will be faster after you get used to doing a batch.

There are 2.4 million rolls of microfilm that need to be indexed, so there is plenty of work for all of us (and the need for all of us to participate).

If you want to sign up, go to the page below… The project is open to volunteers from any religious affiliation. It benefits all family history researchers. If you have family and friends who can help, tell them about it too.

There has never been a project of this scope and breadth in family history records. I hope you can join the other volunteers in indexing this vast treasure trove so we can all view them at our leisure with no associated subscription cost.

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
