New Project!

Yesterday we released a new project to key – U.S. Department of the Interior Decisions on Pensions and Bounty-Land Claims, 1886-1930.  It is definitely an interesting read and I found myself reading many pages that we aren’t even keying.  The project details the claims and decisions regarding pensions and land claims from soldiers serving in the late nineteenth century, many of whom were volunteers.  Everything is typewritten, and although you have to read through the first page of the claims it is a very easy project.

Happy keying!

I just had one where the claim subject and the name of the soldier were the only items on the first page. All else was on the next page, and therefore unindexed.

Great that there are so many new projects but are there any more Australian records, especially immigration from England, in the pipeline. I’ve got heaps of people that I cannot find records for. I’m currently keying NSW Convict Indents.
