The US National Archives has signed agreements with FamilySearch and Ancestry to put more of the Archives’ unique genealogical treasures online. We think that’s worth shouting about!
Please join the National Archives for the 2015 Virtual Genealogy Fair on October 21 & 22. This will be a live broadcast via YouTube so you can ask our genealogy experts questions at the end of their talks.
For details, schedule and handouts visit the Genealogy Fair page at NARA.
These and other research forms can be downloaded at the National Archives’ charts and forms page
Big news for researchers, especially genealogists!
We are pleased to announced that we’ll be livestreaming selected Know Your Records lectures on our YouTube channel starting in February.
Our experts will talk about our holdings, from ship’s logs to civil rights court cases to frakturs, to help you get started and go deeper in your research in the National Archives.
Genealogists and researchers, check this out! Hope we all will be able to take advantage of this.
Based on the successful transcription pilot in the Citizen Archivist Dashboard, we’ve integrated transcription directly into catalog. We’re proud to note that NARA is the first archives to do that! By registering for an account, users can now not only tag records but they can transcribe them too.
