    1. [AUS-ACT] Ryerson Indexers required for Canberra Times
    2. John Graham
    3. The Ryerson Index has vacancies for an indexer or indexers willing to take on the indexing of the Canberra Times each day. A rough guide to the time involved would be 10-15 minutes per day. We prefer indexers to have access to the printed copy of the paper (this is a preference, not a rigid rule) - we have found that some newspaper websites do not contain all the notices published in print. If you have access to the paper, the idea is that you index one day's notices at a time, and send it to us. All indexing is done at home, at a time to suit yourself. It's possible for one indexer to index this paper every day (the previous indexer did it this way for some years), but we are flexible in sharing the indexing around if we have more than one person interested, or if one person feels that every day is too much. We supply the indexing software, plus a full training course for new indexers. Those who have indexed for Ryerson in the past are most welcome to apply. If you are unable to index the notices, but would still like to help, then we have a facility whereby you can scan the notices and upload them to our website, for others to subsequently index. If you are interested, please contact the Ryerson Index via the "Contact Ryerson Index Inc" link on the website at www.ryersonindex.org. John Graham President, Ryerson Index Inc

    3. Hello John Sorry I cannot be of help as I live in Melbourne and only read the C'berra Times on the net to check up on the place as my family reside there. My great aunt married a convict William Parker in that area and he is buried in unmarked grave at St.John's Church, so we have many years of connection with the area, looking forward to the 100 years next year, best wishes, Jean Lapthorne ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Graham" <johngrah@ozemail.com.au> To: <AUS-ACT@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, June 11, 2012 11:49 PM Subject: [AUS-ACT] Ryerson Indexers required for Canberra Times > > The Ryerson Index has vacancies for an indexer or indexers willing to > take on the indexing of the Canberra Times each day.
