First thing I did was look for any messages from headquarters. We do have one and it is available in both English and Spanish.
From: HeadquartersNow on to the batches available for download. WAHOO!! there are NINE English projects. I am jumping for joy! Do you think they read my blog last week telling how I wanted to index and nothing was available in English? I don't know; but a big thanks to whoever got more English projects for us to work on.

I did notice that the Louisiana 1850-1954 Death Certificates were now on the list of available projects. I decided to try to download a batch. Awesome, it worked. I was able to do one batch. With that I completed 3 batches tonight with 50 records in total. My grand total is 7,813 records indexed to date.
Next week coming up should be the big one year mark for me. I went back through my old blog articles and found that I indexed my first batch on Aug 1, 2007. That wouldn't be next week. It appears I sometimes indexed more than a week apart at times. I can see that I first indexed on a Wednesday and then turned around that following Monday and did some indexing. What can I say I messed up. I guess my weeks will be off when I actually do hit my one year mark.
Oh well, I guess I'm an over-achiever! LOL!!! It sure does mess up my counting system, and I tried so hard to keep track. WAAAAAAHHHH...[deep breath]...I will live. It just gives me more time to build up my numbers and plan my party for myself. This is a milestone for me. It's taken quite a bit of effort to index every week and write an article about it too. Don't think for a minute after a year I'm all done indexing. I will be at it for a long-time to come.
See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
