Total Records Processed: 5.7 million
And if you participated you got this badge:
This year it's happening again! I would like to encourage everyone, young and old, beginner and advanced to participate. Coming soon I will post step by step instructions with pictures on how to index and download the indexing program. If anybody wants I can email my word doc with the instructions, comment your email if so.

One Week. One Hundred Thousand Volunteers. Come Help "Fuel the Find*" Around the World!
The Worldwide Indexing Event is now one week long! Join volunteers from around the world to help “Fuel the Find” Special training is available to help you prepare!. You have one week to participate by indexing at least one batch in the language of your choice. If you are fluent in French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish-our focus languages for 2015-please help index records in one of those languages.
This year we’re going for a record 100,000 volunteers (current one-week record: 91,721) but big numbers mean more when we’re helping meet the greatest need. English speakers have billions of records to search-20 times more than all other languages combined! Let’s help our friends in other countries to find their ancestors too! All it takes is one batch indexed sometime during the week to be counted.
