I am excited to be participating in a fun event with my little family this weekend! I hope you will join us! Have you ever done any indexing? Have you heard about it? It can be a fun and interesting way to bridge the gap from our past to our present!
From July 15-17, 2016, FamilySearch International will sponsor the third annual “Worldwide Indexing Event,” bringing 72,000 people from around the globe together online during a 72-hour event to save the world’s records by making them searchable to the public. During the 72-hour indexing period, volunteers participate by downloading the FamilySearch software and completing as many names as they would like. Anyone with a computer and internet connection can join. Volunteers have made over one billion historic records searchable online since FamilySearch introduced online indexing in 2008. The demand for indexed records continues to grow as millions of historical records worldwide are added every year.
To join 72,000 teammates in saving the World’s records, visit https://familysearch.org/worldsrecords.
FamilySearch International is the largest genealogy organization in the world. It is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
