We launched the World Memory Project almost a week ago. Since then thousands of keyers haved joined the Ancestry World Archives Project community. Together we have keyed over a half a million records this week, a large percentage of which were on collections from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
I am humbled and amazed at the contributions of this generous community! Despite the Nazis’ efforts to erase human history, millions of their victims stories are now being brought to light and will soon be online through your efforts.
Some of you have put in just a few minutes in the past week, keying one or two image sets. Some of you have spent eight, ten, even twelve hours a day keying hundreds of records. Every one of you is appreciated. Every record keyed counts. Every name recorded is another person remembered. The power of truth is in your hands.
If you visit the World Memory Project website you can keep track of how many contributors are involved with these specific record collections and how many records you have keyed collectively since we launched this project on May 3rd.
Until next time – Happy Keying!
