The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) is looking for more volunteers to help them get data online for all of us to use. From what little volunteer indexing I have done in my lifetime, this task involves looking at images on the screen for key bits of data, such as names, and typing them into a data base the sponsoring organization. They also need help scanning parish records (for their Historic Catholic Records Project, which right now is the Archdiocese of Boston parish records) and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) silver books (new ones are issued periodically), and digitizing other records "from the comfort of your own home!" There will be a webinar on Thursday, October 23, from 3-4 pm EDT (which in AZ is noon to 1:00 pm) explaining how this works. If you want online access to more New England documents, like I do, and want to see data in the hands of people dedicated to New England genealogy rather than people with a cause or agenda you don't support, consider at least checking out this opportunity to help.
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
