  • They invited us to sign up to be beta testers in the indexing area in RootsTech14, and hope to have the new program ready to roll this year. Some projects will stay on the old system until they are finished, and some new projects will start on the new system, so there will be some overlap.

  • If you are working in “Browse Images” (records that are not indexed yet) and find a record of your ancestor, FamilySearch hopes in the future to provide a pop-up window so that you can index that record immediately and add it to searchable records. (Applause.)

  • Enjoy indexing the wonderful obituaries that are being posted now.
  • They are PURE GOLD.
  • Take time to read all the training several times; they are easy to read but a bit tricky to do correctly.
