Recreating family history one piece at a time.

Pay It Forward

One of my things I do as part of my family research is pay it forward. I have researched for others.  Another of my favorite things is to transcribe digitized images into a searchable index.   It is fun to be the first person in years to review files.

If you are a genealogy buff I would suggest you sign up and become a transcriber of records, or  go to a cemetery that is not longer being maintained and transcribe the tombstones.  We all need to help make records available and preserve records before they are lost.   We have all tapped into things like this that others have done for us and it is up to us to pay it forward for others.
