Familysearch.org has completed the 1940 census indexing project. It took only 124 days to index 132 million records, due to unprecedented support from thousands of volunteers.
TIARA is proud to have been a part of this effort. Thirty-three TIARA members gave their time and effort to this project, so that everyone would have free access to the 1940 census. Together the TIARA team indexed 138,140 records, and arbitrated 52,558 records.
Familysearch.org has many more projects to be indexed, such as Passenger lists for Atlantic and Gulf ports, naturalization records, WWI draft registartions, and pension files. Volunteers install software provided by FamilySearch on home computers, download images from the site, type the data they read from the image via the software, and submit their work back to the site. The data is eventually made available to the public -- free! -- at the FamilySearch website for use in genealogical and family history research.
Online tutorials are available. If you already have a login account at familysearch.org, you can add TIARA as your group.
This is a project that can benefit all of us! And you can do it on your own schedule, at home or elsewhere. Let's get started! Visit indexing.familysearch.org/ to download the indexing software and do a practice page.
