Dear FamilySearch Indexer,
Thank you for your ongoing participation in FamilySearch Indexing. Along with being recognized and appreciated, your efforts have helped make more than 380 million names available online in the last three years. We are currently seeking some specific assistance from you as someone who has arbitration rights.
With all of the new people coming in and indexing records, we have recently fallen behind with the task of arbitration—comparing indexing discrepancies to determine which indexing value is correct. As you are probably already aware, arbitration is fast and easy and offers a different experience from transcribing records.
Please help us eliminate our arbitration backlog by participating in arbitration over the next few weeks. When downloading your next batch using the FamilySearch Indexing tool, please select the "Arbitrator" role before clicking the "Download Batch..." button as shown in the image below.
Also, you can view our 10-minute review on arbitration if you want a quick refresher.
Thanks again for your ongoing participation in unlocking the world’s genealogy records for the entire community. Your role as an arbitrator is very crucial to the success of FamilySearch indexing. We sincerely appreciate your efforts!
