Worldwide Indexing Event—October 20–22

Entrance on east side of building

Indexed records are one of the great marvels inspired by God to assist in the effort to gather His family. As a temple and family history consultant, you can play a key role in helping others learn to index those records that enable discovery experiences around the world. One fun way to get others involved is through the annual worldwide indexing event on October 20–22, 2017.
