To get started as a new indexer, go to https://familysearch.org/indexing/get-started-indexer/, and follow the instructions there. Review the indexing basics section for helpful resources to get you started for the first time.
As indexers become more experienced, they may want to continue challenging themselves by getting started in new areas. These may include:
- Indexing more difficult projects
- Work on other languages besides their native tongue
- Do arbitration and review
See below for resources to help experienced indexers get started in these areas.
FamilySearch will soon begin to release the new web indexing program to stakes and wards throughout the world. Once you have learned to index in the desktop indexing program, get started in the web-based program here. You should now have access to web indexing, or you can gain access through this link.
Learn more about the transition to the web indexing program here.
