There were a lot of participants yesterday when we visited France with the USHMM – Eure-et-Loir, France, Selected Holocaust Records so we had some good competition.
Congratulations to yesterday’s winners! The top keyer was Carol, from Virginia, with 2148 records and Karen, from Nottinghamshire, was the top arbitrator with 161 image sets.*
Tomorrow we are visiting Italy and the Pavia, Lombardia, Italia: Registri di Matrimonio records. What you will be keying are marriage records and announcements (banns) from couples getting married in Pavia, in the north western province of Lombardy. The handwriting is beautiful and flowing and as is typical sometimes a little difficult to decipher. The records are in forms that are easy to follow making this a good Italian project to try. (I think I’ll make some homemade pasta to celebrate the day. )
*Challenge winners, if you haven’t received an email from me please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
