Projects

FxGS has several projects, some of an ongoing nature and others that have a more finite duration in time. Some of the projects have results that are open to the public, some are members only, and others have a shared nature.  Click on the project name below for a description of each project.
 
FxGS's current project involves a digitization project at NARA's Innovation Hub. The group is scanning Civil War pension files for Company A, Regiment 2 of the "US Colored Troops", organized in Arlington, VA. Several group scanning trips have been organized, but anyone may also go to the Innovation Hub at a time of your own convenience - the staff there is great and will get you started. Just let them know you're with FxGS and would like to scan a file from their current project. Contact projects@fxgs.org for more information.
