Better than #SharkWeek : Indexing #theworldsrecords

Are  you ready?  This coming weekend, you can be part of history as you join together with thousands of other people to index digital genealogical records.  It's easy and fun and very helpful for family history researchers.  You can spend as much or as little time as you want, although I feel I must warn you that family history work, including indexing, is a little like eating potato chips:  it's hard to stop at just one!

Given the choice between binge-watching shark shows and indexing, though, I'd choose indexing. (So you know it must be fun!)




Click here, or on the graphic on the right sidebar of this blog to be directed to the (free) software to download, so you will be prepared to help.
And I think I speak for all family history researchers when I say, "Thank you!"  


Can I count on you?

  2. I am going to wait until next time. My computer is not being nice at all these days and I am afraid to download anything. On a brighter note we are hoping to order a new one tomorrow! So next time!

    1. I'm sorry about your computer. The nice thing about indexing is that it is ongoing! Every so often, Familysearch will host an indexing challenge or event, but indexing can happen anytime. Let me know if you would like help getting started!
