5 January 2008

New International Projects/Two New Languages
Several new international projects were added to the list of active FamilySearch indexing projects (see chart below).There is now a need for volunteers with an interest in or knowledge of the new Norwegian and Russian records—Norway 1875 Census and Ukraine Kyiv 1840–1842.
The indexing program’s interfaces have not been translated into Norwegian and Russian yet; however, the instructions for the Ukrainian project are available in Russian and English.

State Censuses
New state census projects were added for Florida (1885 and 1935) and Massachusetts (1855 and 1865). Additional online volunteers are always needed. Patrons or indexers are encouraged to forward these updates to anyone they feel will be interested in helping to index the current projects. New volunteers can register quickly online at www.familysearchindexing.org.
