FamilySearch Needs La Raza

Genealogical record site FamilySearch is looking for 10,000 volunteers who can read both English and Spanish for a massive indexing project of Mexican, Argentine, and other Latin American records.

The first project will be the Mexican census of 1930. When completed (the current estimate is a year), the index of the census will be freely available online and linked to the original census images at FamilySearch.org. The census contains a variety of information including birth year, religion, birthplace, and occupation.

Volunteering does not take up a huge amount of time — volunteers can spend as little as 30 minutes a week doing indexing. To get more information about volunteering, visit http://www.familysearchindexing.org/. In addition to registering to volunteer you can also check out a list of upcoming projects which includes US census states as well as Latin American projects.
