I started indexing this year, after my stake president talked about it in conference. It was a steep learning curve for me at first; I felt clumsy deciphering the handwriting and stressed about entering wrong information and wrecking the index for some poor searcher. But I’ve gotten better at it, and now I like wondering about the stories behind the names. The 67-year old widower I indexed this morning, who lives alone. How long ago did his wife die, and did they have children?
