FamilySearch's Worldwide Indexing Event #TheWorldsRecords



From July 15-17, FamilySearch International is sponsoring their third annual “Worldwide Indexing Event,” in which they will be trying to bring 72,000 people from around the globe together online during a 72-hour event to save the world’s records by making them searchable to the public.

During the 72-hour indexing period, you can become a volunteer and participate by downloading the FamilySearch software and completing as many names as you would like for your genealogy records. Anyone with a computer and internet connection can join.

My father loves doing our genealogy. He has entered many names and their information in FamilySearch. He has also helped update crucial information and records when things have mistakes or are duplicates. He holds a Genealogy Mission in the church and helps many people with their records as well. I know he is doing the Lord's work in doing this.

Help FamilySearch save records from the past!

Since FamilySearch introduced online indexing in 2008, many people have volunteered and have made over one billion historic records searchable online . The demand for indexed records continues to grow as millions of historical records worldwide are added every year.

To sign up and be a part of something bigger than yourself to help save our vital records, visit https://familysearch.org/worldsrecords.

Than you for this. I have been researching my family history andI think this, even if I don't sign up to help, will be helpful to me and my own family history research.
