Australian Newspaper, The Age, Features FamilySearch Volunteers

"A group of American Mormon retirees are working unpaid to scan every Victorian will, probate and inquest document from 1926 to 1937 for upload to the web," Carolyn Webb, writing for The Age newspaper, reported today.

The article continues: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints paid their airfares but the volunteers are paying for their own food and accommodation in Melbourne for up to two years each."

"They take about a thousand images every day, using high-tech digital cameras, in a below ground room of the Public Record Office Victoria in North Melbourne."
