We Are Ready to Start!

This Friday, June 7, is our official start date! Our team will dig into the first box of historic records from Carroll County. These will be estate records, which will be the easiest to prepare. They are already flat and in folders, and the folders are labeled. All that is needed is to remove fasteners (staples, ribbons, pins), create an indexing "target sheet" that captures pertinent information, and enter that data into a spreadsheet. There are only eight boxes of these "easy" records, and they will be processed quickly. The nitty-gritty work starts with records that are tri-folded and rolled (like a jellyroll). But, nothing is too daunting for our terrific volunteers! 

We invite you to participate -- we have teams working everyday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. You can choose a day and time that fits your schedule. Join the fun and "pay it forward"!
