August 2012 Stake Indexing Reports

Summer is Almost Over In Oklahoma

August 2012 Indexing Report
Oklahoma City Stake
With the end of the 1940 US Census project we are seeing a decline in the number of names indexed in our Stake. Total number of names for our Stake this month was 52,883.
 There are many other projects out there that are interesting and easy to do . Please consider trying the  US Community Projects for Immigration and Naturalization. These records include ship passenger lists for all the US Ports that brought immigrants into this country. Some of them are typed, some are very short. You might also look at the U S  Michigan death records, or the WWI registration cards. As with any new project please read the Project Information and Field Helps before you start.

Stake Total as of Aug 31
This includes total names Indexed and total names Arbitrated

(Our 2012 Goal is 1 Million + names)

Two New Links to more Family History Research sites.
I found two new interesting and exciting websites that will help you with your family history research. The first one is a blog page presented by an Attorney who is also a certified genealogist. If you would like to learn more about various records and the information they contain, or about copyright laws concerning genealogy I suggest you read her blog. The hotlink is listed below, just click on it and it will take you to her site.

The second interesting site is at They have a time machine that will present a video of your life as if you lived in the 1940's. Just put in some basic information and your name will appear in the video. It brings history to life.  Click on the Time Machine link below.
