Looking for a way to give back to the genealogical community? An awesome preservation indexing project has begun that may be of interest to you.
The U.S. National Park Service’s Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park partnered last month with the Federation of Genealogical Societies for the purpose of developing a database of individuals who served in the U.S.-Mexican War. The project will be ongoing – after the estimated 130,000 soldiers are entered to a searchable database, military unit information and related documents will be scanned and added.
You can help – just email Patricia Rand at firstname.lastname@example.org.
