Growing Need for International Indexers

June 18, 2012

More than 120 projects are currently available from countries outside the U.S., representing 16 languages. Since the first of the year, new projects have been launched from Bolivia, Paraguay, Switzerland, and the Philippines. Later this year, FamilySearch indexing plans to release projects for Armenia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Micronesia, Panama, Slovakia, and Sri Lanka. More indexers with non-English language expertise are needed to help make these records searchable online.

Join this exciting community effort to make records searchable online and ensure our ancestors are remembered by visiting indexing.familysearch.org.
