Instructions for Headquarters Support


Instructions for Area Support



I would like to index records in a language other than English. Will FamilySearch indexing offer projects in other languages?



FamilySearch indexing does offer projects in languages other than English. Please be aware that

it takes time to obtain the necessary permissions from the record owners, to make digital images

of the records, and to write, translate, and test the instructions for those who index.


To find out when any non-English projects may be available, continue to check the list of upcoming

projects on the FamilySearch indexing Web site. To do this:    

1. Go to

2. Click the Projects tab.

3. ClickCurrent Projects, and scan the current projects listed there.

4. Click Upcoming Projects. Scan the upcoming projects.
