FamilySearch Indexing Update13 October 2008

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was just received from our friends at FamilySearch.org. Please address all inquiries to support@FamilySearch.org . Volunteer to index at www.FamilySearchIndexing.org .


We had great response to our request a week ago for help with the Cheshire - Poor Law project. Thanks to the focused effort of many volunteers, the Cheshire project is now 97% complete!

That's a 15% increase from last week (or 5,748 batches - Indexer A + Indexer B + Arbitration). It should only take a few more days to get to 100% completion. Sincere thanks go out to all of our indexers who responded to the request. Keep up the great work!

New Projects This Week
This week, two new indexing projects were added-Missouri and Tennessee from the 1870 U.S. Federal Census collection. Please send a message to all friends, colleagues, and family members who might be interested in participating in indexing the two newly added state projects or any of the current indexing initiatives noted below.
