A-Z Challenge 2014: I is for Indexing - Changing all the time

www.a-to-zchallenge.com
In last year's A-Z Challenge (2013), I wrote about I is for Indexing.  This year (2014) I am going to revisit this topic, because indexing has changed and will be changing even more later in the year.  Oh, there are still the same reasons for doing it:
  • You don't have to be a computer wizard
  • You don't have to be a genealogy guru
  • You just watched half an hour's worth of cartoons on the TV.  That's all the time you need to index
  • It's free
and (most importantly) you will be helping someone else enormously because you will be providing an online index to records which will eventually be available on FamilySearch.org (and they will be free).

So, how has it changed?  Well, at the moment, the changes are still just updating the look of the current program.  But, later in the year, there are BIG changes afoot.  Read about them here - changes such as 'bringing indexing to your browser, enabling indexing on tablet devices, and much more' [FamilySearch blog]

So why don't you give it a try?  Read up about it here.  Like they say, 'there's no time commitment'. You don't have to provide a credit card number.  And your ancestors are jumping for joy at your enthusiasm!
