* English Projects Spreadsheet

I was going to do a top 20 list but I'm not sure if I'm going to remember (not that I will not have time) to update it everyday. Whereas I've started the spreadsheet over again a couple days ago cause I felt I needed it. The only difference this time is that it will be sorted by country and then by how much the projects are behind in arbitration. The reason for this is to help arbitrators decide on what projects really need their help. United States is divided into two sections right now, obituary projects and non-obituary projects since there are some of us who like the obits and some who hate them.

No New Posts Arbitration / Indexing Experiences

- Post about your experiences with these indexers / arbitrators but do so in the politest way you can if it is a negative one - No name calling - No cursing All posts that violate this will be warned and possibly removed. We have proven elsewhere in the forums that it can be done without being really rude or negative.

There is a section now near the bottom of the main page for Genealogy questions and help which includes help for transcribing your own images, translation help and other genealogy questions. Please post Share Batch Numbers within body of the post not in the title of the post. How to Get the Share Batch Number is in its own thread within this area. Please always include in your post the name of the project if it's not a handwriting help request. This board's older posts are deleted or moved on a regular basis.
