FamilySearch Indexing: New projects for Italy, New Zealand, Peru, and the U.S.

The following is from date 22 July 2009.

New projects for Italy, New Zealand, Perú, and the U.S. were added this month. FamilySearch has 42 international indexing projects underway currently (see charts below). It has a growing need for more volunteers who can help with the increasing number of foreign language projects. Please feel free to encourage and recruit friends, family, colleagues, and society or special interest group members to help with any projects of interest. Sign up is easy at FamilySearch Indexing. The average assignment only takes about 30 minutes to complete. Many volunteers make quick work—which equates to quicker access to the completed indexes!

  • Italy, Trento—Baptisms, 1784-1924 [Part 2]
