This week’s new projects


Today brings us two new projects from California - California, Alien Land Ownership Records, 1921-1942 and California, Railroad Employment Records, 1862-1950 (Part 5).

In the California, Alien Land Ownership Records, 1921-1942 project you will encounter packets and cards with information regarding land held in California by non-naturalized immigrants, mainly of Japanese descent, between 1921 and 1942.  We are only keying from the title page of the packet so you will encounter quite a few images that will be categorized as Cover pages.  You can read more about the project, and see sample images on the wiki page and post any questions regarding the project on the Discussion page.

And although we have seen many California Railroad records the California, Railroad Employment Records, 1862-1950 (Part 5) project contains a different assortment of records.  You will most often encounter individual employment records, both cards and pages, and quite frequently they will include dismissal notes with details regarding why their employment was terminated.  You can read more about the project, and see sample images on the wiki page and post any questions regarding the project on the Discussion page.

Happy keying!
