Reserve 6 February 2011 for Super Indexing Sunday


Ken Sisler, a family historian who lives in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada has put together a Facebook Group entitled Super Indexing Sunday to announce a grassroots effort to index genealogical records through the website indexing.familysearch.org.  The goal is to break the record of approximately 1.9 million records indexed in 1 day which took place in January 2011. 

Super Indexing Sunday will take place on 6 February 2011 which is the same day as the Super Bowl.

This event is open to the public and not just for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over 400,000 people do indexing on FamilySearch Indexing. Fifty percent of those who index are not Mormons. Please feel free to invite your indexing friends and those who might be interested to participate in this event.

Note: This is not an official event of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
