Anyone start indexing?

Posted by   + Show Post

I got lost on Ancestry looking at the census images that I almost forgot about the Familysearch indexing.  I've done 10 batches of the Delaware Census, went back to get more and there wasn't anymore batches for Delaware, so that state is close to being complete (it has to go through arbitration, but still seems like the state was done quickly).  Moving on to Colorado.

Oh gosh! I don't think I could have the patience to index. Sounds interesting though.

I know many appreciate the efforts all of you take to do so!

Thanks!

I just love looking into the lives of all the people.  While indexing the 1940 census I've often wondered if the young man I just indexed fought in WWII and if he made it out safely or not  I haven't looked further into anyone's life yet, but I won't rule out that option.

 This is how I feel about working on the census, too.....it's so fascinating to me!  And I'm obsessed with names, so I love looking at all the different names.

I am so annoyed that for 2 solid days I've been unable to access the indexing. They know there I an issue but it's taking them forever to fix it, lol. I think I have indexed over 2k names so far.

I was really hoping to index at least 1 batch from each state but if they don't get this fixed soon it won't happen. *sigh*

I guess they are planning on giving away an Ipad this week.  They will take the top 10% of the indexers for the week and randomly draw a name.  I don't think I will be anywhere near the top 10% so I'm glad I already have an Ipad, lol.
