Announcing the Mocavo Community Digitization Grant

16 Nov 2012

At Mocavo we are working with our online community to bring all of the world’s genealogical information online for free putting everyone’s family history within reach. Through ReadyMicro, Mocavo’s digitization group, we are pleased to make available a $25,000 grant to enable other stewards of genealogical content to share that information with the world.

Mocavo seeks proposals from organizations that care for genealogical content, archives, or historical records that they wish to make freely available online.  Materials proposed for digitization and/or indexing should be unique and provide clear value to a broad number of genealogists. ReadyMicro will digitize these materials and, in collaboration with the grant recipient, extract associated metadata.  Mocavo will create an online database from the collection which will be freely available at Mocavo.com as well as the grant recipient’s website.
The Mocavo Community Digitization Grant provides the grant recipient with the following benefits -

$25,000 of digitization services including:

  • Digital media organized into a searchable database
  • Unlimited display and distribution rights for the resulting digital media
  • An online version of the database which may be presented on the grant recipient’s website
