Worldwide Indexing Event 2017

You helped index 7 million names that will help families worldwide find their ancestors and gather their families together in the family tree.

These records are especially valuable to those who have already entered all the information they know about their family and need records to find more family members.

It’s Never Too Late to Index.

My family's relationship has grown closer because of indexing. We have fun with it as we work together to input names and information. There is a special spirit in our home because of the service we are doing together as a family.

I have found where my husband's family came from in Germany through marriage records on FamilySearch. I am grateful for all those who give of their time to help others find their ancestors.
