Indexing Information and Resources
FamilySearch indexing makes the records of our ancestors freely searchable online. Indexing is vital to temple and family history work because it helps “Fuel the Find;” through indexed records, more and more people are now able to find their missing family members, add them to their family trees, and perform temple ordinances on their behalf.
Indexing is a wonderful service activity for people of all ages. It:
- Gives individuals and families a way to be involved in family history work in short amounts of time.
- Provides a service opportunity for those who may not be able to serve in other ways.
- Gives everyone a way to say “thank you” after finding family names through records others have indexed in the past.
