10,000 (+4) Names!!

I finally did it. I've indexed 10,004 names through FamilySearch Indexing. I even have the proof to show you all:


Tada! I really wanted to hit exactly on 10,000, but I couldn't get a record with the right number of entires on it, so 10,004 will just have to do. I've been working on this for almost a year. I started doing it last January or so. So do you think I can make it 1,000,000 in my lifetime?

I just found your blog from a Google Alert I have set for FamilySearch. Fantastic job on the indexing. I've been indexing for 17 weeks and only have 1,678 names indexed. I sure can't see myself getting 10,000 done in a year. I am so impressed that you even have little kids running around doing that.

Amanda ....what an outstanding accomplishment for you. I am an arbirator and have completed over 10,000 arbirations ....knowing the time it takes to do indexing, this is an outstanding amount and my hats off to you for the great accomplishment! Keep up the great work ....just think, people doing genealogy 100 years from now will still be thanking you for the great work you are doing today!

Amanda,

Way-to-go Girl! I only found out about FamilySearch a month ago and have been loving it. As I tell others, I will certainly be using you as an example of inspiration!

Thanks for being such a great example!
