For the New Year


Pat Rongey suggests taking a look at the Citizen Archivist Missions website for a list of possibilities – many worthwhile opportunities. Projects involve tagging and transcribing records.

Projects include:
– Transcribe ‘typed or handwritten narrative that documents the escape and evasion experience of the escapee or evader . . . “
– The American Soldier – Transcribe ‘collection of more than 65,000 handwritten reflections by U.S. soldiers who fought during the Second World War.
– Transcribe ‘correspondence, reports, and case files pertaining to the property of individuals, families and businesses impacted by involuntary evacuation and relocation because of their foreign national status or Japanese Ancestry.”
– European Name Index – Transcribe ‘index cards that contain the name of an individual, a case number, a summary of information from the case relating to the individual . . . victim, witness or accused . . .’
