FamilySearch Preserving World Records: Indexing Event

Do you have a lot of relatives? I sure do – I grew up knowing most of my GREAT grandparents, and thankfully still have my grandparents and most aunts and uncles! But as far as ancestors, I’m a bit at a loss there. That’s one reason keeping the word’s records is so important – so we don’t loose our important history! With FamilySearch Preserving World Records – the Worldwide Indexing Event will be held July 15-17th. What is that, exactly? Well let me explain…

With a goal of 72,000 over a 72-hour indexing period, volunteers will participate by downloading the FamilySearch software, then completing as many names as they’d like. All it takes is a computer and internet connection to join! This saves the world’s records by making them searchable to the public. Told you it was important 🙂

  • This is awesome information. I just started re-researching our family tree and my goal is to add genealogy to our homeschool curriculum. I’d love to join the DAR and my boys to join the SAR.

    Bookmarking this for reference. Thanks so much!

  • This sounds awesome and like a great way to bond with your family! There’s no telling what you could discover about your family history if you go looking!
