Recap of Presentation “FamilySearch Indexing”
Listen to Rose Munguia present on FamilySearch Indexing. Learn about its purpose, how you can help index records, and why it is important to help out.
Rose Munguia has been doing genealogy research for most of her life and mostly on her own family. She enjoys helping others by providing clues and or resources so they can find their own ancestors.
Here is the table of contents for the video and a short description of each. The numbers in parenthesis are the time in the video where that particular topic is mentioned.
Intro Dialogue (0:00) - Moises talks a bit about Las Villas del Norte and then introduces our speaker Rose Munguia.
