Give the Gift of Discovery

This holiday season, you can give others the joy of discovering their ancestors by taking time to index. Volunteer indexing has already made more than a billion records easily and freely searchable on—and your help is needed! Your gift of indexing will help bring year-long cheer to researchers in need around the world.

For fun we’re decorating a Christmas tree with your gifts of indexing. For every 750,000 records indexed in any language from December 1 until December 25, we’ll add an ornament. Every 750,000 arbitrated records will add a new present under the tree.

Look for special international ornaments as non-English records are indexed. If you are fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, or French as a second language, you can find additional resources here.

Check back here or on the FamilySearch Indexing Facebook page to watch as the indexing Christmas tree grows more beautiful. Grab your favorite treat, and help #FuelTheFind this holiday season!

15,680,001 records indexed = 20 ornaments6,286,436 records arbitrated = 8 presents
