Need Motivation? Welcome to a New Year of Indexing

Do you remember indexing the 1940 U. S. Census? I do. Been there, done that!! ...and everyone around the world is able to acess it and use it in their research. Give yourself a pat on the back.

AND what have you done lately?

You do know that Indexing continues - the 1940 U.S. Census is complete, online and searchable.  There are dozens, dozens and dozens of other projects. Projects of all levels are waiting for you to index and get it out there so everyone can use the information. Pick your own projects, there are projects in alot of states in the United States, projects in Europe and around the world, projects in English and projects in other languages. Do you speak/write in a foreign language.......? They really need you.

NOTE: You will see below the lists of Current and Completed Projects. I am overwhelmed just looking through the two lists and I want you to be overwhelmed and excited to see what projects are left that you can start indexing...........  (check out the very last completed project at the end of the completed list........ can you read it? - imagine someone somewhere indexed this project WOW!! & thanks)

Come back and continue your indexing adventures.........  FamilySearch.org INDEXING

(Below is taken from an email received from FamilySearch & their committment to INDEXING)

Welcome to a New Year of Indexing

Thanks to the contributions of more than 358,000 dedicated FamilySearch indexers and arbitrators, over 263,250,000 records have been added to FamilySearch.org in the past 12 months. This far surpasses the achievements of volunteers in any previous year.

And though it is already the largest volunteer crowdsourcing effort of its kind, FamilySearch indexing continues to gain momentum. For 2013 the attention of the community will focus on three main initiatives-the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Community Project, the Italian Ancestors project, and a greatly expanded emphasis on Latin American records.

Everyone is welcome to join the community as we move forward in the new year. Visit FamilySearch.org  to get started.
