One of the biggest attributes that the Guild offers members is the numerous indexes (you need to be logged in to access them). In recent months a decision has been taken to merge the various marriage indexes into one offering a wider and more comprehensive index for members. This merged index will be known as the Guild Unified Marriage Index.
Many Guild members submit their own material to the indexes so that others may benefit. Of course the biggest benefit is to members who can access the full data available, but non members, should they search for any given surname will find that the search results will also indicate if the surname appears in one of the indexes and many instances are to be found.
I am personally submitting material that is relevant to my own family history and then moving on to records from my own One-Name Studies.
Do you use the Guild indexes? and have you submitted material? Or perhaps if not, why not?
