Learn Legacy - 4 tools to help you make the most of Legacy Family Tree in 2013
Five Places to Find East European Ancestors Online

Welcome to a New Year of Indexing

FamilySearch Indexing is one of my favorite ways to spend a few extra minutes. It is enjoyable to do, plus it helps others find their ancestors too. Read FamilySearch's update below - it's going to be an exciting year for genealogy!

Thanks to the contributions of more than 358,000 dedicated FamilySearch indexers and arbitrators, over 263,250,000 records have been added to FamilySearch.org in the past 12 months. This far surpasses the achievements of volunteers in any previous year.

And though it is already the largest volunteer crowdsourcing effort of its kind, FamilySearch indexing continues to gain momentum. For 2013 the attention of the community will focus on three main initiatives—the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Community Project, the Italian Ancestors project, and a greatly expanded emphasis on Latin American records.

Everyone is welcome to join the community as we move forward in the new year. Visit familysearch.org/indexing to get started.
