Here are a few notable projects we have completed!


Woohoo! We have completed all of the New York Originals and Buffalo Soldiers! There are many contributors who have spent hours and hours working on these projects. Thank you!!

For New York Originals it has been a 3 year journey with 8500+ contributors spending 150,000+ hours keying close to 1.5 million records!

For Buffalo Soldiers 846 contributors spent 25,000, somewhat grueling, hours keying 500,000+ records!

You are an amazing group of contributors!

Congratulations on the completion of New York Originals and Buffalo Soldiers, so much hard work by many dedicated people.

So sad but New South Wales Police Gazettes have finished with the keying, 1800 plus to arbitrate. This has also been a long hard road, but so interesting and enjoyable.

We haven’t heard from you in 3 weeks. Is everything OK?

What are the “New York Originals”? I’m not familiar with this project. Thanks so much.

This seems the only place to report an error from: U.S. Naturalization Records – Original Documents, 1795-1972 (World Archives Project); “Declaration of Intention” is good for “Hans Jessen Thomsen”; The problem is when reporting the “Petition for Nationalization” the last name was misspelt “Hans Jessen Thomson”; his birthdate “1 Sep 1887″ was the typed as “1 Sep 1947″; granted the image was poorly reproduced, and it would have been nice to see the reversed image from the back as a separate document. thanks for the record. It would be nice to be able to adjust record data like that of the census records, so I would not have to bother you with this;

This seems the only place to report an error from: U.S. Naturalization Records – Original Documents, 1795-1972 (World Archives Project); “Declaration of Intention” is good for “Ninni Jessen Thomsen”; The problem is when reporting the “Petition for Nationalization” the name was misspelt “Nimi Jessen Thomson”; her birthdate “30 Apr 1887″ was the typed as “10 Apr 1947″ as for “Ninni Jessen Thomsen”; The BIG issue is: it is the same document for “Declaration of Intention” except with the photo. no “Petition for Nationalization” document. It would be nice to be able to make adjustments to record data like that of the census records, and make other comments too, so I would not have to bother you with this;

I am looking to find information on Samuel St John.His wifes name was Thankful Lockwood.Any information on them would be helpful.

@Leslee they are the naturalization records from the state of new york.

They were recently completed after nearly 3 years.

@james, there should be a “submit alternate data” link of some kind.
