Topic: Year of the Obituary- FamilySearch has declared 2014 the “Year of the Obituary” and is working with partners and the larger genealogy community to collect and digitize millions of obituaries from the United States, with other countries soon to follow. The goal for this year is to index 100 million names from these historical documents, including the name of the deceased, relatives, and all other individuals found in each document.
Learn the ins and outs of participating with this project. Even if you have already done some indexing, there are some peculiarities that go along with obituaries that it would be good to learn about before you attempt to join in. Get a good head start on indexing obituaries by learning some tips and tricks to help make things more clear..
