Take a look at my great grandparents pictured 80 years ago in 1920 both at age 55.

The 1903 Project

Hello,

I seek 108 volunteers who will rent one microfilm from the National Archives Series T715. Films 316 to 423. This covers every ship that has arrived in New York City in 1903. I now have 60 volunteers and seek 48 more volunteers. Each volunteer will transcribe only the names of every passenger list on one microfilm onto paper and then into text files on their computer and eventually email them to me after each text file gets finished. If you have 10 ships you can send 10 text files one at a time after each gets done. The text file name will have the film number, the month and day in 1903 and the name of the ship. The file itself will have group of names of passengers who arrived on that ship. I set no time limit when this will get done. Enjoy your volunteer work, seeing that you will help others and yourself. I'm currently assigning microfilms to those who wish to volunteer. I will share these indexes with other organizations that will allow free lookups on these indexes. These organizations will have the ships lists.

5) Download the entire ship passenger index for the 1903 Project.

6) Download a good text search program that searches unopened Zip files.
 

AGLL at 800 658 7755 (www.heritagequest.com) rents or sells such films as well as The National Archives or the Family History Centers. Your public library can join AGLL for free. Then you can rent a film for $3.25 plus shipping for a month and you can extend the rental by having your library calling AGLL and extend it month by month for another $3.25 and then you pay the library who will send the money to AGLL. If you find that you need the film for 5 months and that appears fine with me, you might want to buy the film for $17.95. You'll give the $17.95 to the librarian and you would tell the librarian you want to have them buy the film for $17.95 for you and you will make sure that you get the film as it's owner. If you find anyone else who would like to volunteer please have them write to me.

Thank you.

Dennis Baer

PS.

For example the list will look like this in your editor creating a .txt file

T715 Roll 316 with the ship name SS Livonia arriving on

January 2,1903 would have the filename:

3160102SS Livonia.txt and the port of departure name and passenger names in the file.

The Bremen Project

Hello

Can you commit to doing the transcription of only the names of only one  ships passenger list? Noone will make any money on your work and the results of your work will go to:

1) ISTG      istg.rootsweb.com

2) FEEFHS    www.feefhs.org

3) Tony Cimorelli's Ship Web Site   www.cimorelli.com

4)  The Ships List Archives

http://www.chignecto.net/cwa/newsships.nsf/Search/$searchform?searchView

for free online searches.

5) Download the entire ship passenger index for the 1903 Project.

6) Download a good text search program that searches unopened Zip files.
 

I want to begin with 500 people who will commit to transcribing just the names of only one passenger list, done at their own pace with no time limit. You will need access to a microfilm reader and rent or buy one microfilm. You will need to either handwrite the names to paper or copy the list with just the names of the passengers on it. You do not need the other column information. Then you will enter the names from paper into a text file and email the text file to me when you complete it. You will label the text file name according to the NARA film number, date and ship name of the ship passenger list you transcribe. Many people came through the port of Bremen, Germany during the first decade of the 20th century. The Bremen Emigration lists for the most part got destroyed. Now some lists exist for the 1920's. However I want to see if I can get volunteers to do lists for 1900-1905. Then later if I can get another 500 volunteers I will have the volunteers do 1906-1910. The wonderful aspect of this appears that this data will appear ONLINE for free searching. Can I get 500 people? Can you volunteer to do just the names of just one passenger list? Also can you recruit 5 to 10 other people with net access to volunteer as well? Please reply to me from this message.

Thank you very much.
