Lake Seneca New York Sunset - Girl's Camp 2007


Fourteen members of the Oklahoma City Stake signed up in October to become indexers.
I am now receiving an email from SLC each time someone new signs up.

I would like to welcome all of you, and challenge you to set a goal for each month. Once you set your goal the computer will automatically give you an accumulative count of the names you have completed with each batch you submit.

It helps to have a goal, no matter how big or small it is, to encourage you to consistently work on indexing. The key word being consistently! A new indexer might try 200 names a month. that would be equal to 5 , 1930 census batches, which are beginning batches.

We appreciate any and all that you can do to further the work of the Lord in the Oklahoma City Stake. It appears that our Stake is one of the top 5 Stakes in the North Texas, Oklahoma, Southwest Missouri and Eastern Arkansas area, which includes 34 Stakes. We are number two in indexing this year, in this area as reported by Brother Kirk Hathaway, area regional Family History Advisor. The number one Stake has indexed 415,576 names as of Nov. 1, 2010.

As of November 1, 2010 we have 175 indexers in the Stake, but only 59 of those indexers contributed any names in October. What can we do to encourage members of our Stake, who are already signed up, to consistently work at indexing?
