Family Search indexing https://indexing.familysearch.org/projtab/current_projects.jsf

FamilySearch.org informs us that they have seriously stepped up their ability to convert historic microfilmed records into digital images. The organization now has 185 crews working around the world to capture digital images. All this effort translates into an amazing 10 new digital images of historic documents being created every second. To help transcribe some of these images, FamilySearch is looking for some more volunteers. In particular, they need people who understand Spanish to help with new projects that have begun for Paraguay, Panama and Bolivia. In addition they have an ongoing need for native-English speakers. For example, help is needed with the 1871 UK census and US WWI and WWII draft cards. If you think you might be interested in helping out with any of the many FamilySearch projects, we suggest you check the project list page to see if anything strikes your interest.
