We have been very excited to see the activity and interaction on the World Archives general message board. In hopes of making the message boards more approachable, and a place where more focused discussions can occur, we have created four new message boards covering the main types of records that we are currently working on; Naturalization Indexes, Census Records, International Projects – English Language, and International Projects – Other Languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, …).
The message boards are a great place to discuss questions, share stories you have found, and to network with other contributors. We appreciate your contributions and willingness to help each other through the keying process – we have found many great posts and have learned a lot (what could be better, where you are having difficulties, what changes you would like made, etc.) from reading the message boards and we hope you do too. Enjoy the new message boards!
