What is this thing called Indexing?



Everyone is invited
 to the 
World Wide Indexing Event - 2016 - 
When? 
July 15, 16, 17
What?   
It's a marathon event held at LDS Stake Centers, and Meeting Houses, EVEN your own home for 72 hours but at the Camelback Stake Building there will be FOOD!
Donate 1 hour or 4 - whatever you can! You don't have to do the whole 72 hours by yourself!
Purpose
 We want at least 20 people from each ward or community (does not have to be LDS just interested in documenting history)
Why?  
  Indexing is a relatively new way to document historical events.  Imagine someone opening a trunk in their attic and finding documents that no one has ever seen before.  They get out their phone or scanner and take pictures of these documents - which by the way, is great!




HOWEVER,
The picture is only searchable by the name of the picture.
Valuable information on the document is not searchable because when you click on the 
picture of the birth or death certificate, nothing goes anywhere.

WHAT DO WE DO?  
We look at pictures and write down names from Document pictures dates, significant history, birth, death, causes, obituaries, family  names, Wills and all that they entail.

Now the data can be found by others and families can find each other on the internet!

WHO IS INVITED?
A N Y O N E Who has a laptop and can type...ANYONE with an interest in genealogy,
ANYONE with an interest in people and families.
