Today’s Tip: Volunteer right from your home! No muss, no fuss, no gas bills, no wear and tear except on your fingers!
Like almost everyone who works in genealogy and family history, I use FamilySearch.org a lot! All the time in fact!
So it was only natural for me to seek out how to help them. First I found them on Facebook, then started to follow them on Twitter and saw how much there were getting done. So I found the Family Search Indexing website and began!
Then I went online to https://familysearch.org/volunteer/indexing and signed in and took the tour, gave it a trial run and then I was off and indexing!
I had a blast, helped out a great organization and repaid a bit of the debt I owe them for all their work I use day in and day out! Lots to pick from and you can set beginner, intermediate or advanced! Plus if there is a project that is urgent, they highlight it in red so you can help with that one first if you want!
So ….. volunteer! It is simple, easy, and a whale of a lot fun!
I would have done triple the number of records if I didn’t keep wanting to read them all …. just for the learning!
I hope you will consider this great opportunity!
Onward To Our Past,
