New Version of the Keying Tool

Recently we released a new version of the keying tool that addressed the following items:

  • New Ancestry login requirements.  The new sign in process will lead you to Ancestry to enter your username and password.  If you encounter issues signing in to the tool open a new browser session and sign in to your Ancestry account to ensure you are using the correct username and password.  If you are still not able to sign in please contact us at
  • Fixing the Online Help and project page links.  Previously when Windows users clicked on the links for the project page or message board they were often lead to a blank page – this issue has been corrected.  If you encounter issues accessing the project page or other support articles please email

You can download the new version of the keying tool here,

There are still items that we are working on, most notably are your Records Keyed and Reviewed counts.  We appreciate your patience as we work with our development team to bring our statistics back online.

Thank you for your contributions to the World Archives Project!
