Upcoming Worldwide Indexing Event

The following is from FamilySearch.

FamilySearch Indexing

One Week. One Hundred Thousand Volunteers. Come Help "Fuel the Find*" Around the World!

The Worldwide Indexing Event is now one week long! Join volunteers from around the world to help “Fuel the Find” August 7-14, 2015. You have one week to participate by indexing at least one batch in the language of your choice. If you are fluent in French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish-our focus languages for 2015-please help index records in one of those languages. Special trainingis available to help you prepare!

This year we’re going for a record 100,000 volunteers (current one-week record: 91,721) but big numbers mean more when we’re helping meet the greatest need. English speakers have billions of records to search-20 times more than all other languages combined! Let’s help our friends in other countries to find their ancestors too! All it takes is one batch indexed sometime during the week to be counted.

*What does it mean to “Fuel the Find?” Indexed records are like the fuel that gives the power to connect people to their missing family members. Every name you index adds another drop of precious fuel that can help someone else to find their ancestor and take their name to the temple.
