SCGS Friday Proofreading Club: 1890 Project
It's just the place to beat the heat and socialize with your fellow family historians. Pop in to the SCGS Library in Burbank and proofread records that have been collected for the long-term project to reconstruct the 1890 Los Angeles County census.
After they are proofread, these records will soon be added to the compilation of records that form the 1890 Project to reconstruct the 1890 Census for Los Angeles. Since the Project's inception in 2004, the 1890 Project has produced four volumes of Citizenship Intentions, the 1892 Great Register of Voters, fifteen volumes of Marriage Records, three volumes of the index to Los Angeles County Naturalizations. Other records in the 1890 Project "stew" are cemetery records, names of dental patients, building permit holders, and other miscellaneous record sets.
The Friday Proofreading Club meets on Fridays from 10am to 4pm. Work the hours that best fit your schedule. No RSVP is necessary - just show up and ask for Louise.
