Family Tree Magazine's Genealogy Insider Blog and on Twitter. I haven't had much time to poke around lately, but I have seen a badge earned and posted to at least one blog site already.
When I first read about this project I immediately replied that I would like to help. (I was immediately informed I was the first person to respond to this project - yeah me!) The indexing is being done with the
This index, even now in it's very early stages, is FREE to search at Footnote.com. I have no idea what made me initially jump to do this, it was just something I felt I needed to do. Maybe because it was new and hasn't been done before, maybe because I wanted to "give back," or maybe just because that is where my heart was at during that time. I have not found slaves in my family history, but I do not rule out they may be there somewhere. Whatever my reasoning, I can tell you that I sure have a great feeling now having completed 10 pages. A very small contribution.
I know there are many indexing projects available to work on right now. But I would like you all to think about doing just 10 pages of this collection. If we all kick in a little there isn't so much for just a few to do. I have to say that I have had the MOST PLEASANT experience working on this project! Toni, you are the sweetest and kindest person ever! What a treat! If I can get myself caught up on a few things soon, don't be surprised if you see me come back and ask to do another 10! I had fun! I hope you will try just 10 pages too!
To read more about this project, see LowCountry Africana's site and if you would like to volunteer, go to the news section on the right and click where "Footnote.com and LowCountry Africana join forces." You will be glad you did!
Thanks again Toni, I proudly have your badge on my site! Don't be surprised if you see me back for more...
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
