Update on FamilySearch Indexing

The redesign of the FamilySearch homepage has revealed a new tab for "Index Records." Clicking the tab takes you to the entry page for FamilySearch Indexing, the project by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to in the millions of rolls of microfilm in the Church's archives. The microfilm is being scanned, by high speed/high quality scanners and then sent out to volunteers from around the world who transcribe and index the records. Anyone can volunteer and spend as little as half an hour a week indexing records. Some people spend considerably more time.

The projects are made available for use by anyone with access to the Internet at FamilySearch Labs and Pilot FamilySearch.

The list of current projects is huge. Here is the list:
