I have made this plea several times on the NYC Metro county boards with great results. My group is headed up by John Martino and we have completed and are working on several major databases for the NYC Metro area. Below are some of the projects we have finished and/or are nearing completion.
1-The Southern District Naturalizations for NARA covering Manhattan and the Bronx and recorded in Federal Courts. (completed)
2-The Bronx Naturalizations (completed)
3-NYC Manhattan Death index 1891-1900 (completed)
4-NYC All-Boros death index 1900-1911 (completed)
5-NYC All-Boro death index 1912-1919 (completed but still to be posted)
6-Brooklyn & Manhattan Grooms index 1895-1897 (completed but still has to be posted)
7-All Boro grooms index 1908-1936 (completed but still has to be posted), 1897-1907 in progress.
8-Nassau & Suffolk counties naturalization indices (completed)
9-Brooklyn Brides index up to 1937 (nearing completion)
10- All Boro death index 1920-1929 (coming soon)
11-Eastern District naturalizations for NARA covering Brooklyn, Queens, Richmond up to 1926 (nearing completion)
12-Eastern District Naturalizations from 1927 on up (still to be started)
All of these indices are or will be available at the Italian Genealogy Groups website at www.italiangen.org and the best part, we insist on these things be free to all genealogists.
Now for my plea. We need numerous volunteers to help with these projects. All of it can be done at your home in the comfort of your computer chair. All you need to have is some reasonable typing skills and a spreadsheet program on your computer (Excel or Works do great), a passion for genealogy and a desire to "give a little back" to this passion. I won't lie to you, the work is easy but tedious so we need dedicated volunteers.
If you think you would like to help, you can contact John Martino directly at JohnM16881@aol.com and let him know. We can have some of those Eastern District Index pages in your hands in a matter of days. John will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for listening.
