Story

FreeCEN provides free access to transcriptions of British censuses. We have over 35 million records already transcribed - can you help us make that 70 million? We're currently developing a new version of FreeCEN, which is 10% of the way through its transformation. We'd like to set up a 'boot camp' for those approaching or in retirement, training them in Ruby and Refinery, so they can contribute to the development and maintenance of this project. Donations will be used for this, or for other expenses, such as servers. We also need transcribers (see freecen2.freecen.org.uk/cms/opportunities-to-volunteer-with-freecen to find out more) and technical volunteers (see freeukgenealogy.org.uk/about/volunteer/tech-volunteering-opportunities to find out more)
About charity

Free UK Genealogy

Free UK Genealogy provides free, online access to family history records. We work with a team of dedicated volunteers to create high-quality transcriptions of public records from governmental sources, parish churches, and other trusted institutions. We believe that Open Data and Open Source are key to making and keeping public records accessible to all. We work with others with the same concerns.Charity Registration No. 1167484
