San Francisco Mortuary Records to be Indexed

I've written a lot about FamilySearch Indexing. And another reason I've felt a little behind with GeneaBlogie as well as reading the blogs I usually read is that I've done a lot of indexing! But I was particularly excited by the announcement the other day that San Francisco's mortuary records will be indexed in a venture involving the California Genealogical Society and Library, the San Francisco Public Library,, the Genealogical Society of Utah, and, of course, FamilySearch Indexing.

I'm gooing to help out on this. This porject, like all FamilySearch Indexing projects is a worhty way to give something to the community.

For more details and an early progress report, see Kathryn Doyle's writeup on the CGSL blog.

Thanks, Craig, for pointing your readers to this new project. Have you had a chance to take a look yet? The batch I did today were records from 1915 and eight of the ten records had obituaries included.

Yes, I've looked over a couple of batches. I'll get started in earnest tomorrow.
