New Projects! Connecticut and PA & ME Naturalization Indexes, U.S. Historic Postcards


Wow!  It has been an exciting day today.  This morning we released four new projects, Connecticut Naturalization Indexes, 1851-1992, Pennsylvania and Maine Naturalization Indexes, 1795-1955, U.S. Historic Postcards (Batch 5), and U.S. Historic Postcards (Batch 6)

Many of you will be excited to see more Naturalization Indexes coming out as these records are quick and easy to key.  Although the records are specific to each state of course people coming to these states are from all over the world so you see a great variety of names.  A tip to keep in mind while keying these projects is to make sure you are keying all of the information that is on the record – there are essential fields (highlighted in red) that are necessary to identify the record but there is additional information on the record that should also be keyed. 

The Postcard projects have been redesigned are and back online.  Not only are the photos a trip back in time but they are just so much fun to look at.  We are keying the captions found on the front and back of the postcard describing the photo – although it is fun to read the messages we are not capturing this data.  You can read more about these projects here.

Keying either a naturalization index or post card image set will take about 5 minutes so I think we could make great headway if everyone spent even 10 minutes a day keying these projects – maybe we should take bets to see how quickly these projects will be completed!

I appreciate the effort to make the instructions for each project more user friendly. It is “one-stop” shopping for the project example and the instructions to go with it. Thank you.

I just finished arbitrating the Connecticut naturalization records. I wonder if some instructions can be put in red when so many mistakes are being made. The one specifically I would like to see if that if 2-digit year numbers are given, that only the 2 digits are keyed. Keyers are not noticing that instruction.

I signed up to help with this project but never was giving a project to work on. I really would like to help.

can you point me in the right direction on what to do.

thanks and make it a good day

I am really enjoying working on this project. So far I am just working on “easy” ones but will soon move up to average. I have worked on the No. California Naturalization records and historic postcards.

Keying these records is incredibly fun. I appreciate Sydney’s note here as that was a mistake I have been making.
