3-2-1 CITE! - FamilySearch Indexing Challenge

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:

  1. Pat,

    I want to let you know that your blog post is listed in today's Fab Finds post at

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I'm not sure where to put this, but I have completed the challenge. I had indexed some in 2012 and had forgotten what fun it was.

    1. Great job, Lisa. You've really outdone yourself with 19 records of the U.S. passport applications and 15 records of the National Guard records. Hope you can join us sometime during the GeneaSleepOver as we index together during FamilySearch's Worldwide Indexing Event.
