Minutes of your time could help preserve decades.

The Ancestry World Archives Project is a collaborative effort that has allowed thousands of people around the world to help preserve history that would otherwise be lost. Would you like to give back to the genealogy community? Help families discover more of their stories and share them with future generations?

The Ancestry World Archives Project lets you help us bring free historical record collections to the public. Contributors become the first to see new collections as they type in information that creates searchable record indexes.

Mac Users
While the Ancestry World Archives Project keying tool is only available for PCs, it will work on a Macintosh with a Windows emulator program.

I will be holding two question and answer sessions this week - the first will be tomorrow morning (Wednesday, September 28) at 11 am MT and the second will be Thursday, September 29 at 6 pm MT.

If you are interested in attending either session please send me a note, afechter at, letting me know which session you want to attend and I will send you sign in details.
