Two new projects


Today brings us two new projects, U.S., Chicago and North Western Railroad Employment Records, 1935-1970 and USHMM – Czechoslovakia, Selected Jewish Holocaust Records, 1942-1945.

U.S., Chicago and North Western Railroad Employment Records, 1935-1970 is very similar to the previous Chicago and Northwestern Railroad projects – keying employment records for individuals working on the railroad.  The records are generally typed and quick to index.

The USHMM – Czechoslovakia, Selected Jewish Holocaust Records, 1942-1945 project contains name lists of Jews whose property was confiscated by the state, lists of the “Relief Committee of Jews from Czechoslovakia,” and letters.  We are keying the names of individuals who were victims or survivors.  Due to the records being in mainly German and Czech there are some language and detective skills involved in indexing these records.

Happy indexing!
