Help Us Publish More Free Records Online
Searchable historical records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of online volunteers worldwide. These volunteers transcribe (or index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are always needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published weekly online on FamilySearch.org. Learn how you can volunteer to help provide free access to the world’s historical genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/Indexing.

    Are you now responsible for the reporting of new collections? Recently, some have not been notified to patrons, so I hope there is a specific FamilySearch employee who has this responsibility, as it would be a shame if patrons are not noticing the new collections being added.

  2. I think it would be a wonderful idea to keep the records categorized after they are indexed.
    Some of the index jobs I have done have have been over standardized when it comes to requests for statistics and other data. For instance a passenger list index required the ship’s name but not a single passenger record had the ship’s name on it.

    1. English Translation:

      As a favor inform me if genealogy isn’t done, since i have recieved a lot of calls of attention and that I do with the cards and there was no way to see the weaving and handling of indexing. I am grateful to who is atending to me for doing the genealogy and who call my attention.
