FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Event is Here

FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Event is Here

Every year FamilySearch.org holds a worldwide indexing event.  The object is to get as many volunteers as possible transcribing as many genealogy records.  We all win as projects are completed.  People can do as little or as much as they like.

I participated last year.  I transcribed California naturalization records.  I enjoyed helping out, this year I’m doing it again.  If you’ve never participated, all you need to do is download the indexing software.  After than, do a couple of test projects to get the feel of what they are looking for.  Then, pick a project and type!

You do not have to commit to completing any number of batches.  In fact, if you input one record you’ve helped out.

I noticed that there is only one project for Hawaii.  It’s the Hawaii Marriage records (transcribing from the old register books).  I’ve selected that project and will try to do as many as I can over the weekend.

If you have a few minutes this week, pick a project, and help out!  There is plenty more to do on Hawaii Marriages.  Or, pick another project that interests you.

So, what do you say?  Are you in?
