Online Volunteers Index a Whopping 100 Million Records Already This Year

July 22, 2010

FamilySearch Indexing is excited to announce that our dedicated volunteers have completed 100 million records in the first half of 2010, and is on track to complete a targeted 200 million by the end of the year. Patrons can search these new indexes and images at pilot.familysearch.org or beta.familysearch.org.

More volunteers are always needed—particularly on international, non-English projects. New projects were added for Brazil, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States, and Russia.

Interested volunteers can start helping any time by registering to index at FamilySearch.org and selecting a project.
