I posted a while ago the request for volunteers here. We continue to have projects that need help.
So thanks for considering helping.... here's what I have on my plate right now.
1. 1900 Cities. We are tackling the top100 cities in the US for 1900 and hope to be able to open a geographical search utility on the One Step site. With this project, I will give you boundary descriptions of the EDs of a city, and hopefully a map showing the ED boundaries in 1900...but perhaps the map will not be able to show the street name clearly. Using a circa 1900 map, or searching the online images of the city on Ancestry for 1900, or a combination of both, you fill in the internal streets of each ED.
2. 1940 to 1930 ED proofing. I've transcribed off of the National Archives film series T1224 150,000 1940 to 1930 ED conversions. A volunteer or two with access to a NARA with these film rolls needs to proof the files.
3. Augmented our 1930 to 1920 ED conversion tables. Volunteers with access to a NARA branch, or a library or Family History Center with 1930 films of NARA T1224 (ED descriptions) can help here. I'll provide a template for the transcriptions. Another possibility here is to help with entering from a data sheet the ED conversion numbers into a text file.
4. Help revise city files for 1940 and 1930 from a table of added information. In this case, you would get a table of street names and ED numbers, and add those numbers to an existing street/ED file.
If any of these look interesting, let me know.
