World Memory Project

I received this in an email today. A very important indexing project that I will be helping with. I hope you will join me.

"Imagine not knowing a loved one's fate for 65 years — and then finding the truth in a document you never knew existed.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has collected more than 170 million documents detailing the experiences of individual victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution during World War II. Now Ancestry.com is partnering with the Museum to create the World Memory Project, which allows anyone, anywhere to help make these documents searchable online for free — so more families can discover what happened to loved ones victimized by the Nazis during one of the darkest chapters in human history.

Here's how you can help.
You may have heard of the Ancestry World Archives Project, our established community that has spent years preserving historical documents and making them searchable online for free. The World Memory Project is using the same software and processes to build the largest free online resource for information about individual victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution during World War II.

Being part of the project is as simple as typing information from documents into searchable databases. Even just a few minutes of your time can make a difference.

We hope you'll join the World Memory Project in helping families discover missing relatives and facts about their past."
