Have you ever wondered…

Have you ever wondered how to go back to the previous image, or what the check mark button is for, how to rearrange the columns, if you can copy an entry from one field to the next or how to increase the size of the data entry grid?  Or have you ever wondered why we don’t key periods, how maiden names should be keyed, how to enter the age of an infant or why we don’t key information from one record to the next?

We don’t want you to go crazy “wondering” so over the next few weeks we will be holding a series of online conference meetings to discuss different aspects of the World Archives Project. 

Introduction to the keying tool, Wednesday, July 13 at 10 AM MT 

Keying Standards, Wednesday, July 13 at 6 PM MT 

General Q & A Session, Tuesday, July 26 at 11 AM and 6 PM MT

Introduction to Arbitration & Review, Wednesday, July 27 at 11 AM and 6 PM MT

If you would like to join us for any of these meetings please send an email to worldarchivesproject@ancestry.com.

Hi Anna,
Having trouble with time conversion for us Aussies as I can only find MDT & MST time zones. Could you please advise what time these sessions would be for Sydney, Australia.

Don’t worry, by sending my first comment I got your local time, so am I correct that Tuesday 11am & 6pm is Sydney Wednesday 3am & 10am?

Add 16 hours to convert Salt Lake to Sydney.

Thanks Paul

These meetings are over before we read about them for those of us who don’t transcribe every day. A bit more notice if poss.please. Have noted 27 July so will check where I am that day!!

Hi! I like reading your blogs, but don’t always see them right away. If you get a twitter and post a link to your blog, it goes right to my phone (and others too). It would also remind me to log in and transcribe more often.

Just a suggestion 🙂

Were the meetings you had on July 13th at 10am and 6pm be video taped or recorded so we could review them at this time?

Why does the screen jump around so much? I constantly lose my place.

Marilyn, try turning the highlights off.

Hi Anna, I sent you all another message 2 weeks ago about the drop down dictionary overrinding whatever I’m typing. I’ve tried everything you suggested but, nothing helps. I miss not being able to help on the projects. I know you’re very busy but, I still need help over coming this issue. Have a great day. God Bless You, Sandy

I sent an email asking to participate in the early sessions on the 26th and 27th and have had no feedback.

Are they still going on? is it too late to get in on the evening session?
What about (Intro to Arbitration) tomorrow?
