For those of you who don't know what indexing is: You look at images of old death certificates, birth certificates, war registration cards, etc. that have been scanned onto the computer and copy the information from these pictures into a huge online genealogy database.
It's strangely addicting.
Long story short, one M&M was put in a bag for every name that was indexed.
My ward did over 1,100 names.
The person who indexed the most names would take all the M&Ms.
Guess who won.
These will keep my desire for chocolate in check for quite some time!
Chocolate is not the only reward for indexing, though. I think it is wonderful to know that I am helping to preserve the records of thousands and thousands of people. It's family history work at its finest!
On another note... some fall colors are slowly creeping into my home. I am excited to improve my decoration skills! (Let's face it... I am not the most creative person. I hope to change that!)
Hooray for decorating on a newlywed college student budget!
