How to index

I've been saying you need to index but have not told those of you how don't know how to. Here are the directions, all credit goes to Family Search:

  1. Go to and click Get Started.
  2. Follow the download instructions.
  3. Open the indexing program using the new indexing icon on your desktop.
  4. Sign in with your FamilySearch or LDS Account.
  5. Enter your profile information.
  6. Read and agree to the license agreement.
  7. Click Download Batch.
  8. Select a project to index.
To download a set (or batch) of obituaries to index, do the following:
  1. While in the indexing program, click the Download Batch button.
  2. Select Show all projects.
  3. Scroll down to US indexing projects, and select a project that includes the word “Obituaries.”
  4. Click OK.
  5. A message will pop up offering help. Use the help resources as needed, and then click Close to begin indexing the batch.

(once again sorry about the highlighting, I think it happens when I copy and paste)  

Once again all credit to Family Search, they make it more clear than I could have.
