The World Archives Project gives people everywhere a unique chance to help save the world's historical records — millions that might otherwise be lost. Anyone can participate by accessing record images in our system and entering relevant names, dates and other facts to make the information searchable online.

As part of the World Archives Project:

  • All indexes will remain free to the public on
  • will donate copies of record indexes and images from the project to partnering government archives and genealogy societies.

    What is an active contributor?

    Active contributors are participants who index, key and/or arbitrate, 900+ records in a rolling 90 day period.

    What are the benefits of being an active contributor?

    Yes, there are some great benefits to being an active contributor.

    Free access to the images for all of the projects that are keyed in the World Archives Project. A full list of the live databases can be accessed on the Dashboard.
