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!

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
