We’ve just published two new projects for keying. These projects are a little different than our typical projects as they are currently available to search on Ancestry. When we first worked on these projects we used an OCR technology to recognise the names on the records and create an index. Since this time we have discovered that the OCR process didn’t find all of the names on the records. And since census records are such valuable research tools we felt it was important to have them keyed so each name on the record would be in the index. This how they came to be published for you to key.
Census of the Cumberland Settlements, 1770-1790 is a book containing records from Davidson, Sumner and Tennessee Counties in what was North Carolina but is now Tennessee. It is typed and easy to read.
Enjoy and happy keying!
