Just a brief message on this very cold Monday in January and then I’m getting back to some arbitration (maybe with some hot chocolate in hand).
Hopefully you caught Anna’s blog post last week announcing the two new projects we released for keying – Canada, Nominal Rolls and Paylists for the Volunteer Militia, 1872-1914 and the Lübeck 1862 Census. What you may not have caught if you didn’t read the Ancestry Monthly Update is that one of the collections of records indexed by Ancestry World Archives Project contributors went live on Ancestry.com recently as well. This brings our grand total to twelve projects completed and posted.
Which project went live? New England Naturalization Indexes. Anyone can search if for FREE here: http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=1629. And remember, if you are an active keyer (900 records or more keyed/arbitrated in the last 90 days) you have free access to the images as well – whether you are an Ancestry.com subscriber or not.
So – from someone with a few roots in New England – thanks to each of the 2,108 other people who contributed to this project. I can’t wait to start searching.
Until next time – Happy Keying!
