VOLUNTEER AND ORPHAN NEWS
This week the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project welcomed Brenda Hemmelman as our latest volunteer documents specialist. Brenda has taken over the care and feeding of the South Dakota project page.
Brenda has not only fixed all of the broken links on the South Dakota page, but has also added a number of new databases including the Cemetery Record Search, which is considered to be a great resource for pre 1940s burials.
In other volunteer news, we are currently in discussions with a few people over the future of the California page and we hope to have it adopted out in the next week.
That leaves the following pages as orphans waiting for a volunteer government documents specialist:
District of Columbia
