Today marks the one year anniversary of the World Memory Project! In 365 days this is what you have accomplished:
- 1.3 million records keyed and arbitrated
- Completed 9 projects, 7 are live on Ancestry
- Currently working on 7 projects
You have done a lot toward our goal of building the largest free online resource for information about victims and survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution during World War II. THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to these projects!
“We have accomplished more than we anticipated in our first year, and we are grateful to the dedicated contributors who are making victims’ information searchable for free,” says World Memory Project director Lisa Pearl. ”But there are many more records to be indexed, and we are in a race against time to help survivors and victims’ families discover missing loved ones and facts about their past,” she adds.
If you would like to participate in the World Memory Project look for the projects that start with USHMM. Whether you key tens or thousands of records your contributions make a difference!
