FamilySearch Indexing Update: Partner Projects

From FamilySearch Indexing:

FamilySearch has a growing number of society indexing partners. FamilySearch Indexing is working with genealogical or historical societies to complete projects of mutual interest. Volunteer indexers may have noted that partner projects are not readily listed in the available batches to index online unless the volunteer has been granted permission to participate by a partner.

FamilySearch indexers can request to participate in a partner project by sending an e-mail directly to the project’s contact or administrator. The society contact information is found next to the project listing (Go to, Projects, Current Projects, scroll down to partner projects, or just click here).

If permission is granted by the partner, an indexer will receive an e-mail with a new user name and temporary password to use when accessing that society’s project(s). Volunteers should use their regular login and password to continue indexing FamilySearch’s open (non partner) projects as usual.

Current society partners and projects are listed below:
  • Algemeen Rijksarchief en Rijksarchief in de Provincien (National Archives of Brussels)
  • Arkansas Genealogical Society
  • Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia
  • Immigrant Ancestors Project
