How do I adopt an indexing group project?

Groups can adopt a project to work on together. Adopting a project gives group members a chance to get to know a common project, ask questions, support each other, and share the experience. Group members do not have exclusive indexing rights for the project, however. Anyone can index and review batches in the project.


  1. Sign in to FamilySearch.
  2. At the top of the page, click Get Involved.  
  3. Click Indexing.
  4. Scroll down to the Groups section.
  5. Click the name of the group.
  6. ​On the group page, click Add Project.
  7. In the left panel of the Find Projects window, click a difficulty level.
  8. Scroll through the projects list, and click Adopt next to the project you want.
  9. Send a message to your group to tell them the name of the project.
