Genealogists Say “Thanks” Video Contest

October 1, 2012

Join FamilySearch indexing for its first video contest: Genealogists Say “Thanks!”

Here’s your chance to say thank you to the indexers who have helped you find your ancestors. Create a short video that is one minute or less to thank FamilySearch indexers and arbitrators for helping to make records searchable online. Highlight an ancestor you have found, or highlight someone you know who has found an ancestor while searching on FamilySearch.org, and express your gratitude to the indexers who helped make it possible.

Help indexers know their work matters. Submissions may be submitted starting October 8, 2012. Check out the contest announcement for more information at: https://familysearch.org/blog/en/fsindexingvideocontest2012/
