New Projects!


Our new projects this week are… U.S., Military Registers, 1862-1970 (Part 4) These records are mainly from the National Guard and are comprised of a variety of types of records so we are recording basic information for each individual; name, birth date and place if available, and a military date.  Some of the records are very [...]

New Project!


Update:  We experienced some difficulties after publishing this project.  In correcting these issues many of the completed image sets were returned to the queue.  We apologize for the results of this error – your quality may have decreased, and we lost the time and efforts that had been contributed.  We assure you that we will [...]

Another new Project


Today brings us the UK, De Ruvigny’s Roll of Honour, 1914-1924 project.  I have to start by saying that my favorite part of this project is the pictures – we so seldom see the subjects of the records we are keying.  This project is the compilation of biographies of over 26,000 casualties of the Great War.   [...]

After a short season of famine…


We have four “new” projects today! California, Railroad Employment Records, 1862-1919 (Part 3) This collection is comprised of pay lists, and various employment records for persons working on the railroad. Many of these workers were Asian immigrants who came to build the railroad across America. This collection also contains a “Black List” volume which contain the names [...]

“New” Projects


Today brings the return of two familiar projects, the New South Wales, Australia, Government Gazettes, 1853-1899 (Part 2) and USHMM – Krakow, Poland, Applications for ID Cards for Jews during World War II (Part 6).  We have not changed much in the New South Wales, Australia, Government Gazettes, 1853-1899 (Part 2) from the part 1 of the project so if [...]

Challenge Update, Week 7


We had another great week!  It took me a little while to figure out all of the Challenge winners which means that we had a lot of involvement.  Thank you to all who participated in the Challenge. Here are the Week 6 winners: Savannah, Georgia, Licenses and Bonds, 1837-1909 Keyer: Anna Marie D, USA Reviewer: [...]

And our new project is…


…the Mainz, Germany, Emigration Register, 1856-1877.  The records give details for individuals who departed from Mainz, Germany.  Because the records span two pages it is important to key the line number for each line, including those that are blank or have details unrelated to the individual.  The records are in German but are on forms so [...]

Three new projects


Today brings us three new projects – although all are from the U.S. the similarities stop there.   The U.S., Military Registers, 1862-1970 (Part 2) project contains registers for military personnel stationed in Oregon.  There are a wide variety of types of records you will see but all keyed records should be classified as Military Register forms. [...]

Back to the South


The past month we have been going back and forth between the UK and the southern US.  Today our new project is the Savannah, Georgia, Select Board of Health and Health Department Records, 1822-1864, 1887-1896 - reading over the diagnoses reminds me of indexing the cause of death from the Wisconsin Mortality Schedules.  Most of the records [...]

More from West Yorkshire


We have two new projects from West Yorkshire - West Yorkshire, England, Militia, 1779-1827 and West Yorkshire, England, Alehouse Licences, 1771-1962. The West Yorkshire, England, Militia, 1779-1827 project contains various militia records, mostly lists of males eligible to serve from West Yorkshire.  These records come in a variety of formats and are handwritten so we have this rated as [...]
