July Edition: The World Record Challenge is going strong.

I hope everyone received a copy of the July Newsletter in your inbox on Saturday – but just in case you didn’t receive it you can go here to read it.  We talk about accuracy (not worrying too much about the number), the wiki (how you can add your two cents), new projects (sometimes already completed newer projects!), interesting finds (a tragic death), … hopefully all information you find useful as you contribute to the project.

If you have a topic you would like to learn more about, or discover something interesting as you key please send a note to worldarchivesprojecteditor@ancestry.com.  If you didn’t receive the newsletter you may want to  Update your email preferences.

Happy keying!

Is there a way to see the errors that I made, and the corrections, so that I can get a handle on what mistakes I am making so that I can improve my skills. Only getting a XY% accuracy does not help since I have no idea which XY I misinterperated.

I have a project that has the surnames crossed out. Do I try and key it or mark it blank?

I’m also interested in seeing what errors I made. I think it’s the only way to improve keying mistakes. It would help immensely to see what was misinterpreted.
