FamilySearch Worldwide Indexing Event

FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org) is to hold a Worldwide Indexing Event from October 20th-22nd. From the press release at https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/2017-worldwide-indexing-event/:

As in years past, the purpose of the event will be to unite the international indexing community around the common goal of making more historical records searchable online for free. Last year’s event broke the previous records with more than 100,000 indexers helping to index over 10,000,000 records.

This year, we encourage local wards to set their own goals for participation in the event. Local participation will help indexers feel more united with each other and connected with the records they are indexing.

Over 50,000 people have already signed up to participate. To have a look, practice and participate, visit the dedicated event page at https://www.familysearch.org/IndexingEvent2017?icid=bl-wi17-6598.
