There are currently 32,000 + people registered to contribute to the Ancestry World Archives Project. Over 63% of you live in the United States and more than 23% of you live in Great Britain. The remaining 13% of you hail from a total of 92 other countries.
Collectively, you key an average of 1.9 million records and arbitrate an average of 1.1 million records every month.
You are currently working on 47 active projects. Twenty-five of them are U.S. projects. Six of them are U.K. projects. The rest contain records from seven other countries.
The latest project released to you for keying was the New South Wales, Australia Police Gazettes.
You have completed keying and arbitrating 16 projects that are currently in post-production here at Ancestry.com. Three of them are U.S. projects. Five of them are U.K. projects. The other eight represent four additional countries.
Our latest project completed and posted live to Ancestry.com is the Nebraska State Census, 1860-1885. This is the 10th project to be completed and posted, half of them from the U.S., the other half from the U.K., Canada, and Germany.
Our oldest keyer is 93.
Our youngest keyer is 18. (Because according to our Terms and Conditions you have to be at least that old.)
We appreciate every single one of you!
Until next time – Happy Keying!
P.S. – We sent out a brief survey to our active keyers this past week. If you have not received that survey, or haven’t yet had a chance to complete it, please take a moment to do so now by clicking the link below. The more information we have from you, the better we can make this program for everyone. Thanks! http://ancestry.qualtrics.com/SE?SID=SV_cHkvShcN7a5DVbe&SVID=Prod
