Index Cards Crowdsource Project
We Need Your Help!
The Local Studies Collection of Sutherland Shire Libraries has a large historical card index covering the period 1900 to 1985. Library staff have for many years been indexing biographical material, obituaries and local and regional topics of interest from our local newspapers and other sources.
This card index has been scanned and transcripts created by OCR (computers have created a text version of the card image). These transcripts need to be checked for accuracy and corrected where necessary.
This is where you can help. We are looking for volunteers to help correct the cards. You will learn a lot about the history of the Sutherland Shire and at the same time make the valuable information they contain searchable by researchers, genealogists and students.
This project will be launched in 2020. If you would like to be involved let us know and we’ll keep you informed on the progress of the project.
