FamilySearch Indexing, the grandest genealogical project ever, is asking for our assistance in completing the indexing of the 1916 Canadian census by December 3, 2008. If you have an extra half hour this week, give it a try. It's easy to install the free software. Here is their message they sent to current indexers today:
Dear indexing volunteer,
We are currently indexing the 1916 Canadian Census. The project is 43% complete and our goal is to finish by December 3rd. We know that with the help of everyone in our worldwide network of indexers we can reach this goal.
If you have some time available during the next week, between your holiday celebrations, please download, index (or arbitrate), and submit at least one batch from this project.
If you have not indexed recently, the indexing application and help resources are available on the FamilySearch indexing Web site (www.familysearchindexing.org). Click here to read instructions specific to this project. Updates to the instructions and frequently-asked-questions are also available on the project revisions page.
Thank you for your interest and participation in FamilySearch indexing. If you would like to learn more about the 1916 Canadian Census, including a few fun facts, click here.
