Indexing is wonderful, and there are many benefits to serving by doing indexing. It is a work that could not be done without so many wonderful indexers around the world. It is easy for us to speak about the benefits that indexing can bring, but we want to hear about your experiences. There are so many inspirational and interesting stories that you can share. We would like you to send us these stories so that we can share them and inspire more indexers.
Many of you have posted on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/familysearchindexing. That is a wonderful place to hear from you, and you have said so many great things there. We encourage you to keep posting on Facebook, but you can only say so much in each post. If you have more to say than will fit in a Facebook post, we want to hear your full story. Please e-mail your message to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Indexing Story” in the subject line.
We want to hear any story that you feel is inspiring, interesting, or fun. Tell us about your experiences sharing indexing with others. Let us know what indexing means to you and why you do it. A perfect example of an inspiring story was posted on our Facebook page by Mary Light:
“Two years ago today I made the commitment to quit smoking. In order to help keep my hands busy, I found FamilySearch indexing the most helpful and rewarding experience. Thank you!”
We are continuing to grow in both the number of records we have indexed as well as the number of indexers who participate on FamilySearch. We have only you to thank for the progress we have made. If you have a message you would like to share, please send it to us. We will try to share the messages we receive with other indexers to continue to inspire them as well.
