Record Search images unavailable Friday 12 AM to 2 AM

FamilySearch International posted a notice on their Record Search pilot website yesterday indicating that images will be unavailable on Friday the 13th (figures!) from 12:00 midnight for approximately 2:00 am Mountain Standard Time.

Text records will still be available, but images will not be available.

The Record Search pilot site contains some of the very first results from the FamilySearch Indexing initiative, although thus far there is a tremendous time lag between completion of an indexing project and availability of the collection.

  1. My question is about all these images that are being scanned....how long will we have to wait to start using them? Will we have to wait until they are all indexed...that would take forever. Why don't they just start placing everything that has been digitized online, so we can start using it now?
