FamilySearchIndexing: 6 Feb 2009 update

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


February 6, 2009

FamilySearch volunteers wrapped up 14 online indexing projects already in 2009 and continue to make good progress on the 38 open projects. Great work! There are two new projects from the 1930 Mexico Census this week, and the Colorado 1920 U.S. Census project is also new.

As FamilySearch continues to expand into international record collections, there is a growing, continual need for indexers who can read the respective languages. Even if a volunteer can only dedicate a few hours a month to an indexing project, when multiplied by thousands of online volunteers, small contributions of time by individuals can have a significant impact. Volunteers can register and participate immediately at www.familysearchindexing.org.
