FamilySearch Indexers Pass the 160 Million Record Mark for 2010

The following was received from our friends at FamilySearch. If you haven't helped index any of the records  in the past please consider registering and giving it a try! More than likely there is a project listed below that you will benefit from when the indexing is complete, so let's donate an hour and help out. Let's be grateful for the excellent work that has been done in the past by the indexers! ...

FamilySearch volunteers have been busy–we have indexed 160 million records so far this year and more are on the way! New projects now available include records from Canada, England, Russia, and the United States. Completed collections that will soon be available on beta.familysearch.org include records from Canada, Germany, England, Russia, and the United States.
