Join Us for the ThanksGIVING Index-a-Thon!

ThanksGIVING Index-A-Thon

The Second Life Chapter APG is pleased to announce the first ThanksGIVING Index-a-Thon!

Join us on Saturday, November 26, and Sunday, November 27, as we make a final push for the finish line of our chapter community service project, FamilySearch Indexing. This is your chance to give back to the genealogy community and have a little fun while you do it!

You do not have to be a member of the chapter in order to participate. Please visit FamilySearch Indexing for information on how to participate.

Yes, there will be prizes!

Prizes for the top indexers include:

  • (2) 3-month subscriptions to Ancestry.com U.S. Discovery
  • Annual subscription to Ancestry Academy
  • Annual basic subscription to Newspapers.com
  • Annual subscription to fold3.com
  • A copy of Legacy Family Tree 8.0 genealogy software

When setting up your indexing profile, please be sure to select “Second Life Chapter APG -UT” in the Group box under Additional Indexing Information so we will be able to track your progress.

Alternatively, if you participate using the FamilySearch Indexing Beta browser-based program, you will need to report your totals so that you can be included.

Prizes will be awarded at our holiday party on December 8.

Enjoy fun and friendship while you index!

A few of our chapter members and friends have offered to share their in-world homes while you index for a little conversation, networking, and virtual hot chocolate. You will need to log into your Second Life viewer in order to join us.

The schedule and SLURLs of homes to visit will be sent out via our in-world group and posted in our Facebook group. For privacy reasons, the links will not be posted here.

For questions or for more information, please contact chapter president Ellington Sweeney.

We hope to “virtually” see you there! 😀
