Carla spent hours entering data from scanned images of application pages into the national data base as part of the Descendants Project.  She is just one of a host of volunteers across the country that have been transcribing applications.  The goal of this project is to get all the application information into a digital format so that it will be available to researchers.  Carla transcribed 720 applications in 100 hours during November and December of 2010. We applaud her efforts.
