This video gets right to the heart of what Indexers do for Researchers.
Indexers help make genealogy better. They help make genealogy from home possible.
FamilySearch is holding another Worldwide Indexing Event this week!
Will you join us?
I hope so!
Here is my invitation to you:
First, if you have never indexed, visit this FamilySearch page, scroll down and click on the blue ‘Try it out!’ button on the ‘Try a Guided Tour’ section. After you complete the tour, index one batch.
Second, if you are an avid genealogist, I invite you to reflect back on 2017. How many major new discoveries did you make this year? How many of those discoveries were aided by an indexed record? I invite you to index one batch for every major discovery you made this year. Spread your joy to other researchers by indexing!
Third, will you spread the news about the FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Event? You can visit this page, add your email address to be ‘counted in’, and then invite your family and friends on Facebook, Twitter, or by email simply by clicking a few links.
Can you imagine what we could accomplish together if we all just indexed one batch this week?
What discoveries have you made because of indexers?
Here’s one last video. I promise, indexing is easier than you think!
Will you join the ranks of Genealogy Superheroes by indexing?

Count me in!
I’m very familiar with the Luxembourg records so I checked what they have available. The first batch of 4 images was without any extractable information so I tried another batch. I’m now ready for the 22nd! I really should set a time to go in and do one batch a week or day. Thanks for the reminder.
You are welcome! Thank you for indexing. 🙂
