Aventuras de FamilySearch Indexing - Semana 3

Bueno, semana 2 fue hace 18 dias. He tratado de encontrar tiempo para indexar y arbitrar pero el dia del 24 de Julio tuve que llevar a mi esposa a la 'Emergency Room.' Resuelto que ella tenía 'blood clots' en sus plumones. Todo esta bien ya - ella tiene su medicacion y poco a poco esta mejorando.

Tomo tiempo ahora para compartir una historia de una indexadora de Argentina. Abajo pongo el 'articúlo' para leer. Nota: el articúlo solo fue publicó en Ingles - busque en la edición de lengua Español (La Liahona), pero el articúlo no estaba.

“Nine-Year-Old Enthusiastic about FamilySearch Indexing,” Ensign, July 2009, 80

Nine-year-old Ruth Rodriguez of Chaco, Argentina, has been full of energy since she was born, according to her mother, Viviana. With that energy she has participated in dance, karate, gymnastics, swimming, and guitar.

She has also been a volunteer indexer for the FamilySearch indexing initiative since the age of 8, when her mother was called as the family history center director.

“She cried when she found out that you had to be 12 years old to register to use the new FamilySearch program,” Sister Rodriguez said. “Every once in a while she still tries to register, just in case.”

When she found out children under 12 could register for FamilySearch indexing with the permission of a parent, she signed up. She has since helped index Mexican census records and 1869 census records from Argentina.

Ruth helps patrons register for the new FamilySearch or FamilySearch indexing programs. She teaches others how to fill out their family trees and family group sheets. She even helps patrons set up microfilm in the microfilm readers.

Ruth Rodriguez of Argentina became a volunteer indexer for FamilySearch at age 8.

Si mal no me equivoco, y si mi memoria no me falla, dicho articulo en Castellano fue publicado en las noticias regionales de la Liahona, pero no recuerdo que mes...

Yo tuve el placer de conocer a Ruth y a su mamá, que cuando las habia conocido hace unos meses atrás, servía (la madre) como directora del CHF de Resistencia (o Saez Peña) Chaco.

Saludos
