Weekend Challenge


Currently we have 5 projects that are 75% or more complete, NSW, Government Gazzettes, Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Records, Savannah Licenses and Bonds, West Yorkshire Quarter Session Orders and UK, Police Gazettes .  In order to spur these projects toward completion we will have a challenge this weekend, August 22 & 23.  The Top Keyer and Reviewer will win their choice of FTM software, DNA test or a 3 month World subscription.  We will also have a drawing for 2 t-shirts with all contributors to the projects who complete 25 or more image sets being entered.

Happy indexing!
