FamilySearch Indexing Upgrade

There is always so much exciting news going on in the world of genealogy. Today I became aware of some upgrades to the FamilySearchIndexing.org program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Many genealogical websites offer the opportunity to volunteer your time to help others find their ancestors more easily. This effort consists of reading images of original records like census and vital records so you can type what you see on them.
The typed 'index' can then be searched by researchers.

Recently a few changes were made to make the process more user friendly.
Look closely. There is a hint of many more projects to come.
