Indexers Celebrate Record-Setting Italian Ancestors Project Weekend

September 30, 2013

Did you participate in the Italian Ancestors Project record-setting weekend? On September 13–15, volunteers from around the world joined together to index and arbitrate 134,986 Italian records (approximately 400,000 names). Participants were invited to index and arbitrate over 35,000 Italian records in just 48 hours—slightly more than the previous high. Due to the enthusiasm and dedication of many volunteers, the event goal was significantly exceeded.

This contribution will add significantly to the searchable records available to individuals looking for their Italian ancestors. Thousands of family researchers will be forever grateful for the efforts to make these names available.

Thank you to all who participated in the Italian Ancestors Project record-setting weekend and who continue to contribute to the Italian Ancestors Project. To learn more about this project, including the millions of Italian records remaining to be indexed, visit FamilySearch.org/Italian-ancestors.
