It was meant to be ...

My mother recently sent me the index I wrote to my extensive Cricket magazine collection, which I created for my kids when they were little. I had completely forgotten I'd created it. I was in my 20s when I did this! All hand-written into an index book (with alphabet tags on the sides of the pages).

I used symbols to indicate whether an entry was an article, recipe, activity etc. The numbers are (volume, issue) - no page number included.

In 1982 I wrote an index for a microwave cookbook that didn't have one, for my future mother-in-law, when I was 18.

And I didn't know indexing was a 'real profession' until a couple of years ago, just before I did my training! LOL
