The United States Holocaust Museum and Ancestry.com have teamed up to create a new online repository, called the World Memory Project, to document information on the victims of Nazi persecution. It will be the first time that the Museum’s records will be fully available and searchable online.
The project is enlisting the help of volunteers, who from the comfort of their own home and the use of a computer, will transcribe the digital documents so they can be fully searchable online. It’s a great way to encourage community involvement and help digitize the 170 million documents. If you’d like to participate would like more information, view the website here.
