Indexing -- give indexers options
In my stake we have lost MOST of our indexers -- why--there is no variety of projects to do any more. Most of the projects are church registers, There are no more options to use tables when indexing-- this saves the indexers valuable time. Take this project- Ireland, Tyrone—Church Records, 1740–1880 [Part B][MQZ4-CC1]. It's on a sheet of two pages with 33 records.
Indexers must use form entry instead of table entry. This takes away our ability to save time and index more.
We need to be mindful of the people indexing and not waste their time. Our stake just had a training and the lack of projects for beginners left the people being trained saying-- it's too complicated. I do wonder if indexing is going away. There are lots of places in the community to volunteer and people are moving to options where they are appreciated and feel like their time is being put to good use. Thank you
