Our First Box Prepped and Indexed

Our first group of volunteers began document prep on Friday, June 7. The first series to be processed is 7 boxes of Estate Papers from Carroll County, MD. By the end of the day, 4 boxes had been partially prepped. By mid-day on Monday, June 10, the first box was fully prepped and indexed. By Tuesday June 11, the second box was prepped and indexed. Tomorrow, there will be 3 more boxes prepped and ready for indexing. This series will be done in 4 days! The next group of records to be processed will be Carroll County Wills.

We are creating an index for each record that is digitized, which means that the collection will be name-searchable as soon as it is available online.

George Wood, one of our Monday volunteers, completed the indexing of the first box. He added a green dot meaning that this box is finished and ready for digitization by a FamilySearch camera.

You are invited to join us! Volunteers are asked to work a minimum of one 4-hour shift per month, at a day and time of their choice. Send an email to: fsmdvol@gmail.com.
