Here at the Archives, we like to say that there is a story in every box. Help us unlock those stories by transcribing the digitized records in the catalog. Our goal this week is to complete 1,000 transcriptions from Monday, March 16th through Monday, March 23rd.
Get started by visiting the Transcription Challenge page on the Citizen Archivist Dashboard. You’ll find instructions on how to create an account and transcription missions, tips, and individual records to transcribe.
Do you have favorite records already online the catalog and you think they’d be good for the challenge? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add it to our web page.
Follow us throughout the week to keep up with our progress. Will we reach #1000pages? Not unless you accept the challenge!
Ready. Set. Transcribe!
