How many new projects are there?!


Earlier today we released 10 new UK projects! There are 9 Warwickshire, England, Occupational and Quarter Session Records projects,  Boat Owners and Voter Lists,  Flax Bounty ListsFreeholders Lists and Church Warden Account BooksFreemasons ListsGame KeepersHair Powder CertificatesJurors ListsPrinting Press Owners, & Tax Return Lists, and the Dorset Militia Lists, 1757-1799.

My favorite is the Hair Powder Certificates – I just find humor in the fact that people had to pay taxes on their purchase of hair powder. (I am sure the people paying taxes didn’t think it was humorous at all.)  I have keyed all of the projects and enjoyed them all.  These are simple, straight forward projects and they are smaller collections – so make sure to jump in and download a few image sets but leave a few for your fellow contributors too. :)

Happy keying!

Are any of these typewritten?

@bev. Not that I’ve seen, they’re too early.

Wow! Image sets are flying and there are a few projects with less than 100 keying image sets.

@bev

It seems the voters lists are typewritten, but i think they’re all gone.

Good to see new ones, but I’m waiting for an old one to go live. Can anyone tell me when the London Schools project (which I helped key months ago) will be live for searching please?
