Explore the New FamilySearch Indexing Website

The following is from FamilySearch.

Explore the New Indexing Website

We are excited to announce the launch of a new indexing website! This new site includes features you've requested in the past and is the first step toward an improved indexing experience. It is building the foundation for the major improvements you’ll see next year, such as a new browser-based indexing program, indexing on tablet devices, improved and simplified instructions, and more.

The website can be found by clicking the Indexing link on the home page of FamilySearch.org or by going directly to familysearch.org/indexing.

What’s Available Now?

Here are a few of the things that are available on the new website*:

  • Overview: The new overview page gives you the most important links right up front. View up-to-date indexing statistics and track progress toward the next billion records
  • Find a Project: Easily view the details of projects from specific locations, and see new indexing projects as well as those that are now complete and searchable.
  • Get Help: Find help, tutorials, and handwriting guides-all in one place.

What Will Be Available Next Year?

The new website is only the beginning of the improved indexing experience you’ve been asking for. Learn more about changes coming to the indexing program next year, and join us at RootsTech in February 2014 to get a hands-on experience with the new program. Thank you for your continuing efforts to make the world’s records freely searchable online.

FamilySearch indexing

* The indexing.familysearch.org website will continue to be available for a time, but you will need to visit that site only to change your indexing preferences.
