Thanks as always to our wonderful volunteer transcribers!
Our team is always happy to accept new volunteers. If you find yourself with free time while sitting at home, consider joining us to transcribe digitized meeting books. The only skills required are patience and the ability to read handwriting. The experience is enriching and educational – you may find interesting stories, ancestors, mention of places you know, and a heartfelt connection to the past. If you think you’d like to try your hand at transcribing, please get in touch!
