Census indexing party May 22 at RFPL
One month since the release of the 1940 U.S. Federal Census, the Community Indexing Project has announced that over 41 million census records have been indexed by over 101,000 volunteer indexers and arbitrators.
St. Croix Valley Genealogical Society is a partner with FamilySearch in this effort and is seeking additional volunteers to help index the census.
Come join SCVGS for a second indexing party scheduled for Tuesday, May 22 at the River Falls Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m. in the main floor meeting room. You will learn how to download the indexing software and try your hand at actual indexing. Experienced indexers will be on hand to help answer your indexing questions.
Bring your laptop computer and a friend or two, so that we can introduce them to indexing, as well. You do not have to be a member of SCVGS in order to participate. For a nominal fee you can join us for pizza, pop, and desserts. If you have questions, contact Darcy at 715-425-9978.
