And our new project is…

…the Mainz, Germany, Emigration Register, 1856-1877.  The records give details for individuals who departed from Mainz, Germany.  Because the records span two pages it is important to key the line number for each line, including those that are blank or have details unrelated to the individual.  The records are in German but are on forms so it is easy to follow along with where the data is to be keyed in each field – the main reason for the difficulty being Average is the handwriting that although it is pretty can be difficult to decipher.

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


And yes, this project is also the Daily Challenge project for today.

Happy keying!
