The indexing project was launched in August of 2016, using the FamilySearch indexing app. We greatly appreciate the cooperation of FamilySearch and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in making the images and app available for us to use in this project.
Indexing of the US-Mexican War Pension Index Cards was completed in late November 2016, and arbitration was finished in mid April 2017. There were 52,000 images that were double-keyed independently by two different indexers, and then reviewed by another person.
Indexing of the US-Mexican War Index and Service Records started in December 2016, and was completed in early June 2017. There are 212,000 images in this part of the project. Arbitration is continuing at a rapid pace and should be completed by the end of the summer.
Indexing of the volunteer soldier records from the various states started in September 2016 and by late July 2017 20 states had been completed, right about 95%.
We greatly appreciate our indexing volunteers who have made this progress possible.
