New Project – Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, The Ottawa Journal, 1885-1980

Today we released the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, The Ottawa Journal, 1885-1980 collection.  This project is a collection of newspaper pages containing vital events.  There are 30 fields, so depending on the event there may or may not be information to enter for many of them.  (In cases where there are fields that are not applicable to the event type just tab through them until you reach the next applicable field – you do not need to mark them “Blank”.)  In addition to the sections in the newspaper we are keying there are fun comics to look at and many interesting articles to peruse.

If you have questions about this project please post a message on the Discussion page or this message board thread .

For general keying questions please refer to the Keying Standards.
