Indexing entire record I am working on
Can FamilySearch create a indexing project on a record not indexed that I am already working on?
- I have been working on non-indexed records from Eastern Europe specifically Hungary, Somogy, Lakócsa and Hungary, Bács-Bodrog, Palánka. Because many of the small villages are interrelated I find that while putting info into Rootsmagic database that I am almost indexing the entire record.
- Also doing an entire film I feel that I have become very good at identifying the names and places much better when you see them over and over in different handwriting.
- I have been doing indexing on the records you send for many years but not recently. I was even at one time certified to be a reviewer (not sure what you call them now as I have been out of that part until recently.)
- Please, let me know if this option is available as I would love to participate to do these films and there are other villages related to my relatives that I may choose to do in the future. Thank you,
Thank you for your question, and this knowledge article may answer your question: Can I make an indexing request for records?
FamilySearch cannot accept requests to index-specific collections.
As we continue to grow, we are eager to provide as many records on the Internet as possible. However, the process for retrieving, indexing, and publishing records can be complicated, and it may take us some time to provide certain records. Some reasons for slower processing include:
- FamilySearch does not have legal permission to publish indexes or images.
- FamilySearch lacks access to some scanned images.
- Volunteer resources are limited.
We are as excited as you are to have more records available. We thank you for your patience as we work toward that goal.
For a list of currently active indexing projects, please visit our indexing projects page.
At the moment the option of indexing certain records is not available. You are welcome to post your question into Ideas as a suggestion. You can also check for answers to this suggestions in the Idea category as another guest may have posted same suggestion.
Yes, we still have the term of reviewer, check some projects and see if you can use your amazing skills to review projects.
Thank you for working on this records.1
