UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who responded as willing to participate in this project! We have an overwhelming response and the project is now complete.
We have a new project but due to the nature of the project I want to tell you a little about it before we release it for keying.
The Citizenship Case Files of the U.S. Court in Indian Territory consist of an index of case files along with the case files and the supporting documents. We are only keying the index and the numbers from the case folders – in this way we can connect the name and the case files together. We have decided not to key the supporting documents due to the variety, and inconsistency between cases – all supporting documents will be marked as Cover page form types. The files contain as few as 1-2 pages and as many as 380 pages so in order to capture the folder numbers contributors could be going through many image sets marking images as Cover pages. But then you may also encounter the index and keying hundreds of names.
As you can tell this is a different type of project for us to tackle and as such we are asking who would be interested in working on this project. If you are interested please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
