We occasionally see this warning on television directing us to a specific station to receive information in case of an emergency. Although this is not an emergency we are conducting a test. Ancestry’s ultimate goal is to get more content onto the site to help you, others and future generations have greater success in finding that missing link.
This test is to determine if a slight change to our indexing process in the World Archives Project keying tool will get us closer to our goal and still maintain an acceptable quality standard. We have taken a few rolls of previously keyed content and placed them into a new review format to test a Single Key with Review option. We would like to invite those of you who are arbitrators to help us test out this process.
The two collections we have chosen are located in the “Arbitration Projects” tab under the project names:
TESTING – Jacksonville, Florida Area City Directions
TESTING – Pennsylvania, U.S. Naturalization Originals

Once you have completed reviewing a few image sets we would love to hear your thoughts about the new process. Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
