    Keep up the good work!!! The numbers for this month are impressive. Last month the Stake submitted 4,934 names.

    At our current rate we could easily make the Stake Goal of 100,000 names by January 1, 2011 !!!!

    If for some reason you know that more people were indexing in your Ward than listed above, please have them check to make sure they have put in their Stake name and Ward name on their personal info page. If they haven't done that they are in a Genearl Account, and our Stake doesn't get credit for their work.

    You can get to your personal information page by going to and on the home page ( boys on Bicycles) SIGN IN on the upper right hand corner. To edit your page, scroll to the bottom, click edit. After you add your Stake and Ward names, be sure to save before closing the page.

    Stake Goal for 2010

    100,000 NAMES

    That is the Goal the Stake Presidency has set for Oklahoma City Indexers in 2010.

    I know that we can do it if we work together. Our current number of submitted names, as of June 22, is 34,372. We now have 53 active submitters working in our Stake and more being added weekly. We gained about 20 new indexers during our one day fair, more are signing on each day. Many others are re-activating their accounts and starting to index again. If you know of any one who might be interested in signing up to index, please encourage them to contact the family history consultants or Indexing Specialists in their Ward.

    Upgrade to Indexing web site

    On June 15th, 2010 the Indexing web page was down for upgrading. If you have logged on since that time, using your desk top icon, then you do not have the latest version for indexing and may encounter some problems.
    It is recommended that you go to the main page ( boys on bikes) through this link: and click on "Begin Indexing". This will upgrade your current program and you will be then able to go back and use your desk top icon to get to your work page.
    If for some reason you get an error message that says " Server Unavailable" you will some more help getting the upgrades. My suggestion is to follow these steps:

    1. From the homepage click on ASK A QUESTION on the top.

    2. Type in the ask a question box, "Server Unavailable".

    3. This will open the automated support utility and you can scroll down to the question that is numbered # 103272 and click on it.

    4. When #103272 opens you will be asked to choose several options. Only choose the first three options which are: SYNC CLOCK, REINSTALL JAVA and REINSTALL INDEXING. This may take some time.

    5. When it is finished you should be able to go into your desk top icon again, and begin indexing.If you are still having problems please feel free to call me or the toll free number for SLC help desk, which is 1-866-406-1830

    I hope that these instructions are of help to you and that we can keep our great indexing efforts going in the Stake. The statistics for each Ward will be provided to your High Priest Group Leaders and Stake Presidency each month.
