World Record Challenge


The World Record Challenge is this: If the Ancestry World Archives community keys and arbitrates at least 8 million records from June 1st to August 31st, Ancestry.com will match with collections they paid to have keyed and launch those indexes for free on their website.

Please help!!  Even if it’s just one record.  You can choose the project you wish to work on – for example today I indexed some New York Naturalizations and California Railroad Wage Sheets.

When you sign up, please select OTHER as the reason you chose to participate in the World Archives Project and then put “PassagetothePast.wordpress.com”  in the comment section.  Thanks!!
