A GENEALOGICAL SERVICE PROJECT

I'm wondering how many of you or your friends, family, coworkers and associates
might be interested in participating in a "genealogical service project" - the Family Bible Preservation Project


Here, below,  is a nice summary you can share with others in your address book or social media.

Would you be interested in becoming part of a GENEALOGICAL COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT??

Especially if it was something you could do at your own speed and on your own schedule - from within the comfort of your own home??

 

We are currently looking for people who have expertise with FamilySearch Memories and can help us tag/link copies/transcripts of
Family Bibles to the family in FamilySearch FamilyTree who originally owned the bible.  This will help ensure that important family genealogical information
is preserved for descendants of such families.

 
We would LOVE to have YOU  share with us your expertise in using Family Search Memories to accomplish this service project.

The General Summary of the project is here:

Basic Instructions  (probably unnecessary if you already know how to link a memories item to a person.)

Here is an instructional video if you feel you need it.

The current batch waiting for processing is here:

(select any item that says "add tag" - and note that we recommend just tagging 3-4 people
per bible so you can move on to other bibles)

 

Let me know if you have any questions.  Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

and please forward this on to anyone else you feel may be interested.

 

Thanks
