Genealogy Record Indexing - FUN & EASY

I've just started doing indexing on census and other records from home. It is so simple. Just go to

The site is very simple. There are just three buttons. Start by volunteering. Then install the software. Then begin indexing. Instructions are provided for each step.

Each batch has about 40 names. For census records all you extract is name, age, sex, race, and place of birth. It takes between 30 minutes and an hour (maybe even less than 30 minutes because so much is automated).

It is fun and a good way to use 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there throughout the day!

I met Pocahontas and Snow White

I attended a ward relief society in BYU 8th Stake last Sunday where I met Pocahontas and Snow White. Both girls were headed back to Florida as soon as finals were over to work the summer at Disney World!
