Monday Milestones – New England Naturalization Indexes Go Live

Just a brief message on this very cold Monday in January and then I’m getting back to some arbitration (maybe with some hot chocolate in hand).

Hopefully you caught Anna’s blog post last week announcing the two new projects we released for keying – Canada, Nominal Rolls and Paylists for the Volunteer Militia, 1872-1914 and the Lübeck 1862 Census.  What you may not have caught if you didn’t read the Ancestry Monthly Update is that one of the collections of records indexed by Ancestry World Archives Project contributors went live on recently as well.  This brings our grand total to twelve projects completed and posted.

Which project went live?  New England Naturalization Indexes.  Anyone can search if for FREE here:  And remember, if you are an active keyer (900 records or more keyed/arbitrated in the last 90 days) you have free access to the images as well – whether you are an subscriber or not.

So – from someone with a few roots in New England – thanks to each of the 2,108 other people who contributed to this project.  I can’t wait to start searching.

Until next time – Happy Keying!

Wow! It was amazing to see so many people are involved in one project. I think I was one of the other 2108 people who keyed records.

I kind of jump around in projects. Usually I have one pet project from which I download image sets (right now it is the RI, NJ, CT – Returns from Military Posts, 1800-1916) and skip around to others like the one closest to completion, the one with the most amount of image sets remaining, the one with the least amount of image sets remaining, etc…

I am glad to see another project come online and look forward to seeing many others come online for all to see, not just ancestry members.


It is so encouraging to see the progress.
As a senior citizen, I look forward every day to making my small contribution and have the luxury of time.
By the way, does being an active keyer entitle you to all WAP projects or just USA ones? Just wondering.
Onward & upward everyone!


Ahni, You should get access to ALL wap projects. If you don’t have access, you should contact Support.

I would love to see more projects from New England.

Ditto that, Michelle!

I found family records, but could not find out how to get free access to the images. Ancestry switched me to subscription page.

Please tell me how to access as I do have over 900 records keyed in last 90 days.

Betty, contact support
