Are you ready? It’s on again. That is, the FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Week. So if you are a regular indexer, and occasional one, or have never even indexed FamilySearch records before, but are interested – all of you are needed to take part in their Worldwide indexing event that is being held between 7-14 August this year.
They are hoping for 100,000 indexers to take part from all parts of the world. And honestly I don’t think they’ll have any problem getting the numbers.
There’s no doubt that having an index adds value to a record. While a few die-hard researchers are likely to do it the hard way browsing through records, reading page-by-page, the majority of researchers don’t, and do rely on an index.
With over 100 indexing projects currently happening from different corners of the world, you can choose which project you’d like to be a part of.
For those who are interested, but have no idea what it’s all about, don’t worry as FamilySearch offer plenty of step-by-step help, including instructional videos, detailed tutorials and FAQs, and the FamilySearch Indexing Facebook page is one you can ask further questions if you have them.
I know it’s very cliche, but it is true “every little bit helps”. Be a part of history by contributing to the worlds largest free genealogy database. Just think, every name you index, makes it easier for someone find that person.
