Welcome to FamilySearch Indexing! Free webinar by FamilySearch's Devin Ashby now online

The recording of today's webinar, "Welcome to FamilySearch Indexing!," by Devin Ashby is now online for free for a limited time at Devin taught how to index records using the FamilySearch Indexing software. He also explained the background and history of indexing, where FamilySearch fits in, and showed a preview of the new indexing software to come in the near future. Most of all, he showed how we can each "pay it forward" a bit. A few comments from our viewers:
  • I have had indexing on my mind for some time. Looks like there is almost zero learning curve. This should motivate me and many others to jump in. The water looks nice and warm at the beginners' end of the pool! And I surely have been a "user". Now I can give a little back. Even considering just all the Legacy webinars I've viewed, I need to give back plenty. Thanks for such a worthwhile afternoon!
  • Excited to get back to indexing. You are so right it is a way to give back.
  • EXCITING, INSPIRATIONAL. We have a Family History club of Seniors (av. age ~70) that I want to share this video with & explain how they can volunteer for indexing and at same time learn to use(search) FamilySearch more effectively for their own genealogical studies!
  • I was so happy to learn about indexing today. I wasn't aware of this project before. It's a great way to give back while searching for your own family. Thanks again for a great webinar!
