Get Ready to Help Fuel the Find!

Join the [ward/stake] as we help #FuelTheFind through FamilySearch indexing so others can discover their ancestors. Each record you index can help someone else to find an ancestor and take their name to the temple. Our [ward/stake] will be greatly blessed as we work together in this great cause.

When: [Provide date and time]

Where: [Provide the location, unless your event will only take place online]

How to Prepare: [Inform them that they will need their LDS account username and password and to download the indexing software.]

How to Participate: [Let them know how many batches they need to index or arbitrate to participate and how to help others get involved.]

Goal: [Share the goal that your group is trying to accomplish.] An optional pre-event training meeting will be held on [date, time, and place] to help those who are new to indexing. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact [name of local stake indexing director or family history consultant].
