All it takes is about 30 minutes of your time to help! FamilySearch is inviting anyone who is interested to help break a record of the number of indexers working in a oine-day period.


“Our stated goal is 50,000 volunteers participating in a single day, though we think the potential exists to surpass that mark by a considerable amount,” said Mike Judson, indexing workforce manager for FamilySearch. “All it takes to be counted in the record is to submit one batch. With hundreds of thousands of past indexing volunteers and thousands more joining weekly, breaking the record won’t take much if people will commit to spend the 30 minutes or so required to finish and submit a batch.”

The 24-hour window begins at 6:00 p.m. MDT. For more information about regional start times and/or record languages available, see the link above. (Note: Indexers are encouraged to index records in their native tongue.)
