Because of your service more than a billion of our ancestors can be found on FamilySearch.org today. Yes, a billion! And you have played a key role. After batches are indexed twice by volunteers they are housed in a database until they receive a final review, called arbitration. Without your help these indexed names cannot be published or made searchable online.
Just this year more than 20 million images—or 75 projects—have been arbitrated. If each of us arbitrate an extra batch here and there, an additional 4 million images could be freed from the database and published on FamilySearch.org. Even more, think what we could accomplish if we recruit our friends and neighbors. Do you know someone you could invite to arbitrate? If so, see the details below.*
We appreciate your collaboration as the largest group of online indexers in the world! THANK YOU!
*If you know other experienced indexers with an eye for detail, please encourage them to explore arbitration to help free over 4 million images waiting to be published on FamilySearch.org. Have them ask their group administrator or stake indexing director for rights; they can also call support to discuss their options.
