Maine Indexing Volunteers Needed

Fellow MGS member Brian Bouchard of earlyMaine.org writes -

The University of Maine and http://www.earlymaine.org/ are working together to put an online index of all the Seniors listed in the Prism yearbooks Fogler Library placed online earlier this year [see our posting dated 28 Apr 2008]. There are 103 years of books to index (1894-1997) and we've currently indexed most of the names through the class of 1937, with hundreds of names being added daily. But, we still have a LONG way to go.

You can search the index online as information is being added at:

or by going to http://www.earlymaine.org/ and going to the "Our Projects"
-> "UMaine Prism Seniors Index" menu option.

As of this morning, there are just over 7,000 names indexed online.

We are looking both for a few more volunteers to help get this information entered, and we just want to get the word out about the project for anyone who may be interested.
