For centuries, key moments in our family stories have been captured on fragile paper. These records are often all that’s left of ancestors’ lives – the only way we can learn more about them. Sadly, many of the world’s historical records are disappearing faster than we can archive them on our own.
That’s why we’re creating the World Archives Project, to let anyone help preserve the contents of these valuable documents in indexes that will remain FREE to the public. As a participant, you'll be the first to see new collections as you enter information into our database. You'll also get the satisfaction of helping families better understand their unique, meaningful stories.
We’ll let you know when you can start participating, and possibly even help us test our new World Archives Project software.
