The Ancestry World Archives Project is thousands of volunteers from around the world with a passion for genealogy and a desire to help others discover their roots. You simply take digitized historical records and key in information to create free, searchable record indexes.
This wiki is an effort to reconstruct and revive the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness site that was created by Bridgett Schneider and which became dormant with her death in the fall of 2011. Hopefully, the previous volunteers will find the site and supply contact information so that the wiki volunteer pages can be as robust as they once were.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has gathered millions of historical documents containing details about survivors and victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution during World War II. In partnership with Ancestry.com the two organizations have created the World Memory Project to allow the public to help make the records from the Museum searchable by name online for free. Getting started is as simple as downloading a free software program and then typing details from a record image into a database that will then become searchable online.
