US, Scots, London and Nazi files update from Ancestry's WAP

Ancestry.com has announced that its volunteer based World Archives Project is now tackling the indexing of US based correspondence and case files from the country's Immigration and Naturalization Service from 1903-1952. Further details and examples of the material to be keyed are available at www.ancestry.com/wiki/index.php?title=World_Archives_Project:_Subject_Index_to_Correspondence_and_Case_Files_of_the_Immigration_and_Naturalization_Service,_1903-1952.

From the same project the Fife, Scotland, Voters Lists, 1832-1894 are now complete and awaiting a release date, as are other potentially useful projects, such as an Index of Jews Whose German Nationality was Annulled by Nazi Regime and London, England, Land Tax Valuations, 1910.


Chalmers General Biographical Dictionary has also just gone live at Ancestry.co.uk - see http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=7077.
