Things to do: Indexing

Some folks have a bit more spare time these days. Things that have been put off are getting done! That is good news, even if we complain about current events. But there are only so many weeds to pull, only so many socks to knit, only one fence to repair, only so many miles to walk. Some who love to volunteer in the public sector are suddenly missing their need for an altruistic fix.

Here is an idea…. there are still old genealogical records out there that need indexing!

If you have a few hours to spare and the T-V is turning into a radio and your family tree is filled out through six generations of cousins, then maybe you could volunteer as an indexer at either FamilySearch.org or Ancestry.com.

As they say, from the comfort of your own home…. all you need is a computer connected to the internet. You can even choose projects that you prefer, like in Wisconsin, Italy, Guatamala, Georgia, etc. I would like it if some of you who can read German records would help index some of my family’s records! 🙂

Here is a link to the top of FamilySearch indexing project:

They also have a need to index records at Ancestry.com.

Of course, you could start your own blog. That could be my next Things ToDo article ?
