I am distressed that the Odessa Holocaust records have been pulled. I believe that I have been the only one working on the project up to now, and the quality of my work could not be assessed for some reason. Now my summary shows only about 500 records done in the last 90 days — yesterday it was nearly 1900!
What is the reason for this?

Type Why is it I don’t receive some of the recors for keying, I join to do some of the older US records. I have over 16,000 names in my database and understand a lot of the early Us records. I have been working on the Holocaust and picking up other records but I see a lot here I have never seen ?????

Robert,
There are no longer keying image sets for the the projects listed in the post – only review image sets are remaining.

Marion,
I will look into the record count decrease.

Marion: You are not alone in working on the Odessa records. I have keyed over 90,000 records; most of which are from that dataset. I would like to have it back also.

Just noticed that I too have lost a lot of record completions; about 30,000 or so. Also my average daily count has been hijacked.

where are you Sylvia This is Lincoln
