3-2-1 CITE! - FamilySearch Indexing Challenge

DearREADERS,
Looks like we've got a new month coming up. Since last night's Hangout on Air about FamilySearch Indexers we have seven new indexers. Let's take it up a few notches and make a push for EVERYONE of my DearREADERS and followers to "pay it forward" and indexing some scanned images at FamilySearch Indexing. Ol' Myrt here has 5,000 Twitter followers and if they each indexed 100 entries, that would be half a million new indexed entries! (Yes! That deserves an exclamation point!)




Using the resources at FamilySearch Indexing, participants are to:

3 - review 3 possible projects
2- submit two batches
1 - write 1 paragraph about your impressions
CITE! All sources, including your 'personal knowledge" as the source for the paragraph you write.


Here's a short intro video introducing this month's challenge:
