On March 11, 2009 we removed the Beta tag from the keying tool so we are now officially 4 years strong. In the past four years we have accomplished many amazing things…
– Keyed 99,500,000+ records (We’re almost to 100,000,000 records keyed!!)
– Completed 192 projects
– 161 Live projects on Ancestry available for anyone to search for FREE
– Launched the World Memory Project and more recently the student program
– Released a Mac version of the keying tool
– Got better at reading/interpreting handwritten documents.
– Made new friends and enjoyed ourselves while participating in a great cause.
It is a humbling experience to witness the growth of the World Archives Project. There is no better word to describe our community than AMAZING. Thank you all for choosing to contribute and to support bringing more indexed records online for anyone to search for free.
Happy 4th Anniversary!
