The TNGenWeb Project is pleased to be able to offer our researchers access to material that will help you as you investigate your family tree. As a volunteer group, we can do some of it ourselves, but for the most part we rely heavily on the contributions of you all. We could not do this “without a little help from [our] friends!” (cue up Joe Cocker’s song a la Wonder Years here…) 🙂
We had great success with having volunteer help from the 1940 Community Census project. What better way to continue the volunteer spirit than by helping us with a few TNGenWeb specific projects?
We currently have a short list of projects for which we would love to have additional partners to transcribe and index. They include a marriage project, a biographical project, cemetery records, and a yearbook indexing project. We hope to add more project options over the next several months.
Over the past six weeks we’ve piloted our processes with a small group and have been quite pleased with the outcome. The group has reformatted data for more than 35 cemeteries, transcribed more than 300 biographical profiles, and indexed hundreds of marriage records.
Your efforts would be for whatever time you wish to contribute, whether 30 minutes or several hours each month. We hope you can join us in these endeavors. Visit our Indexing & Transcription Projects page to learn more.
