FamilySearch Indexing Project is waiting for you!

Are you ready? 
FamilySearch would like to have 50,000 indexers and arbitrators to submit at least one batch in a 24-hour period! Do more if you would like, but one batch is all that is required to be counted in the record!
The record-setting begins at 00:00 coordinated universal time (UTC) on July 21, which is 6:00 p.m. mountain daylight time (MDT or Utah time) on Sunday, July 20. It ends 24 hours later, at 23:59 UTC (or 5:59 p.m. MDT) on Monday, July 21. 
Check the FamilySearch Facebook page at for your local start time and status updates.
Here are the statistics on indexing Canadian projects - 
  • There are 67,802 current volunteers 
  • There are 15 current projects
  • There are 7,832 Images awaiting arbitration 
  •  There have been 787,408 Canada records contributed 

Some of the project that still need indexing are –
  • British Columbia Marriages 1937
  • Newfoundland Vital Records 1840-1949
  • Prince Edward Island 1721-1905
Plan now to get involved and add your name to the record-setting event!
