And our new projects this week are…


… California, Spanish Archive Records and USHMM – Kraków, Poland, ID Card Applications for Jews During WWII, 1940-1941 (Part 7).

The California, Spanish Archive Records project contains records in Spanish and English translation for petitions for land grants prior to California becoming a state.  Due to the unique nature of this project we will be keying minimal information, page numbers and year, from most of the records you will encounter.  We will be keying the majority of the data from the Printed Grantee Index records – this will enable us to link all of the related records together.  Since there are indexes at the back of both the Spanish/Original records and the English/Translation records that we will not be keying it is important to familiarize yourself with the Keying Samples on the wiki page.  If you have questions or feedback regarding these records please post them on the Discussion page.

And USHMM – Kraków, Poland, ID Card Applications for Jews During WWII, 1940-1941 (Part 7) is the final part of the Krakow project.  Similar to Part 6 there are some unique records that we haven’t encountered in the other Krakow projects – Police Logs,  Population Cards and Residence Questionnaires.  These records are primarily in Polish but you will also encounter some German as well.  If you have questions or feedback regarding these records please post them on the Discussion page.

Happy keying!
