Marriage Indexing: Changes To Project

Four counties are being completed and then we will start on several more counties. In the meantime, as FamilySearch puts out the last of the records for the first four counties and prepares for several new counties, you may encounter several delays. Right now there are no records available for indexing but that is temporary. When records are available, they are not complete records -- just fragments which are difficult to figure out. It is a bit confusing but we appreciate your patience as we work through this transition.

When the next counties do start appearing, be aware that this project is being opened up to all the FamilySearch indexers in an effort to move the project forward much more quickly. I will still be available for questions and all of you that are already signed up as indexers and arbitrators will be moved into the bigger pool of FamilySearch volunteers. We welcome the additional help this project will be getting but are so very grateful for those of you who have gotten it to this point. We couldn't have done it without you and hope you will continue with this project as your time permits.
