Review/Arbitrate: USHMM – Czech Republic, Selected Jewish Holocaust Records, 1939-1941
Although the USHMM records are Average difficulty I find that I hit my comfort zone after reading through the instructions a few times and slowly keying a few image sets. I then recognize the key words and where they are found on the record. And if it has been a while since you arbitrated image sets you might want to review the Arbitration Instructions for tips to refresh your memory. (When I opened the first image set it was the look of the tool that threw me a little. )
