Join us for our next live webinar on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at 2:00PM EDT. The webinar, hosted by Legacy Family Tree, Helping Unlock the World's Records: an Insider's Perspective on FamilySearch Indexing will be presented by Jim Ericson, product marketing manager at FamilySearch.
Learn how the world’s records are made searchable and available online through FamilySearch indexing. This class will discuss the origins of FamilySearch indexing, the purpose this service fulfills, the benefits of becoming an indexing volunteer, and tips and tricks that will make the time you spend indexing more productive and fulfilling. More than 126 million records have been indexed in 2010, but it would take nearly 300 years to index all of the records available today at the current rate (not to mention the millions of additional records that become available every year). Learn how you can get involved in this monumental effort that helps others identify and document their ancestors.
Jim Ericson has more than 13 years of experience combining his interests in technology and genealogy to launch new products and services in the genealogy community. Jim is currently a product marketing manager at FamilySearch, where he encourages participation in online volunteer efforts, including FamilySearch indexing, and the FamilySearch wiki. Jim previously worked as marketing vice president for FamilyLink.com and OneGreatFamily, where he led efforts in interactive marketing, brand development, marketing communications, and strategic relations to define and market online genealogy subscriptions. He also worked for four years as a product marketing manager and marketing director for Ancestry.com.
