Historic Records Indexing Volunteers Going Strong

April 20, 2011

23 New Projects; 5 New Partners

There’s much to talk about in FamilySearch indexing in this update. First, our volunteers wrapped up 16 projects in March! So how do we reward such a great achievement? By giving them more work to do, of course! We’ve added 23 new projects for them to tackle! See the list below for details. FamilySearch indexing volunteer continue to set new milestones, indexing 1.5 million historic records a day on average now.

We are also very excited to announce our list of FamilySearch indexing partners is growing. Indexing partners are invaluable. They bring additional zeal and expertise to indexing projects they sponsor. The partners’ members and FamilySearch patrons will benefit from high quality, highly searchable, and desirable online indexes as a result of their participation. Our latest partners and their currently sponsored projects are:

Volunteers are always needed and encouraged to help with any of FamilySearch’s indexing projects (see the lists below). Volunteers can start and stop any time at indexing.familysearch.org. Completed indexes will be published for free online access at familysearch.org.
