FamilySearch ( is an organization that transcribes scanned family records, such as property deeds, marriage records, and census records. Family is important to this nonprofit organization, which is why they have created this organization. The goal is to connect families across multiple generations. Families are at the core of all of the joy and meaning and people’s lives.


There are a variety of different ways that you can volunteer with this organization. You can index historical records to allow people easy access to this information. You can also serve as a Family History Missionary, who helps people find their ancestors. These are just some of the ways that you can help this organization accomplish their goals.

The benefit of volunteering with this organization is to help others learn more about their ancestors and family history.

There is no mandatory time commitment for this volunteer opportunity.

FamilySearch was founded on the vision that learning about your family history and ancestors can help you better understand who you are. By forming a more solid family bond and connecting with the past, you are getting solid ground to move forward. This vision is only made possible by the team of volunteers and employees who work hard to preserve and share what is possibly the largest collection of historical and genealogical records in the entire world. This organization has been compiling these records for a very long time, which is how they have grown to have their massive collection of data.
