I am contributing (or attempting to) the AWAP for the first time. I read the beginner articles and keying rules. I keyed my first set of three images. When I tried to submit my first set, I get an error message that states “The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme ‘Anonymous’. The authentication header received from the server was “.” Help!?

Amanda,
Welcome! I am sorry to hear of the difficulties with submitting the image set. Have you attempted to submit again? If you continue to receive an error please email our support team @ worldarchivesproject@ancestry.com
