FamilySearch Indexing: Where are those archived images?

DearREADERS,
Would you like a peek at the Granite Mountain Vault where the original FamilySearch microfilm and digital images reside? It's this huge collection of images that we're working through as volunteers with FamilySearch Indexing. Check out this video:



We are ALL IN on FamilySearch Indexing's one -WEEK indexing event.

And as usual, we support the indexing initiative 100%. #FuelTheFind

We need volunteers to join our Hangout at http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext

Can you help us for 15-20 minutes any time during the hour? I'd like to talk about breakthroughs you've experienced using indexed records at FamilySearch.

We will also do follow up during Mondays with Myrt, a special Tuesday hangout, our Scotland Study Group and a special Thursday Hangout, all starting at noon Eastern, 11am Central, 10am Mountain, 9am Pacific. 

We are working to get a FamilySearch Indexing rep to join us as well.

In this manner, we are supporting the 2015 FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Event.

HERE'S WHERE TO START INDEXING
Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
