New Projects!


Our new projects this week are…

  • U.S., Military Registers, 1862-1970 (Part 4) These records are mainly from the National Guard and are comprised of a variety of types of records so we are recording basic information for each individual; name, birth date and place if available, and a military date.  Some of the records are very name dense so we have kept the image sets to 2 images.  The records are generally typed and are straight forward to key.  If you have questions, comments or feedback regarding this project please post it on the Discussion page or this message board thread.   
  • USHMM – UK, Selected Records Relating to Kindertransport, 1938-1939 This is a small collection of records related to the emigration of children from Germany nine months prior to the start of World War II.  We do not have facsimiles for this project so it is important to read over the form type descriptions.  The records are generally typed and are in English.  If you have questions, comments or feedback regarding this project please post it on the Discussion page or this message board thread.
  • USHMM – Poland, Lodz Ghetto Register Books, 1939-1944 (Part 2)  This is a continuation of the register books from the Lòdz Ghetto and contains records for individuals who lived there.  Generally you will be capturing names from a Register page so although the records are in German once you understand what the columns are you can easily find your way through the records.  If you have questions, comments or feedback regarding this project please post it on the Discussion page or this message board thread.

Happy keying!

Given that Part 2 is only just now approaching completion, did I blink and miss Part 3 of the U.S. Military Registers? (Or was the earlier Marines registers project retroactively included in the part numbering?)

I have been searching for john loughran’s . He served in the Royal Irish Riffles, died at home in Cooley Carlinford Louth in 1916. His military number was 19924 His Father was Felix Loughran. There seems to be no more information.I’m going to write to the Red Cross in Dublin. Teresa
