Census Indexing

I’m a genealogy fanatic! I love it and have been researching my family history for more than fifteen years.  More than ten years ago I started giving genealogy lectures.   In fact, this fall I’m directing the Kentuckiana Family Research Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.  FamilySearch is cosponsoring the event and we will have speakers from the Louisville Genealogical Society, Sons of the American Revolution, the Louisville Free Public Library and others.

A couple of weeks ago FamilySearch Indexing set a goal to index 5 million records in one 24 hour period.  They not only reached that goal, they doubled it, indexing over 10 million records with the help of over 46,000 volunteer researchers of which I was one.  Yay, us!  If you want to help index you can try it out here.
