Abstract

Searchable indexes and digital browse aids play an essential role in providing easy access to an archive's records. FamilySearch is making tools available to archives to help them index their records. Learn what the FamilySearch indexing system is and how it can help you add digital browse aids to published images, create searchable indexes of records, and link existing records or indexes to images.FamilySearch has different indexing environments and deployment options available to fit the needs of all archives, regardless of your size or location. You can use the system to either recruit and manage your own volunteer workforce or leverage the 200,000+ volunteers already involved in the indexing program.
