Researchers give back this Christmas

There has never been a better time to undertake a local or family history research project.

Increased online accessibility to digitised records, many of which have been indexed through the genealogy giants FamilySearch, Ancestry, Find My Past and My Heritage and archives and libraries around the world.

The Summer period is a good time to delve into these records as we avail ourselves of holidays from employment, education and usual routines. But have you thought about giving back this Christmas? What can you do?

There are online projects available in transcription and indexing in particular but also tagging, content curation through list making and more.

Have a look at these suggestions for your down time this summer.
