Transcribimus volunteers look at photos of original documents hand-written in the late nineteenth century and transcribe them into digital files. We have completed more than 300 sets of minutes so far.
The procect was started in June 2012 by MLA and former Vancouver Mayor Sam Sullivan. We think the issues covered in the City Council minutes are fascinating, and we hope you do, too.
