Welcome to the Transcribimus Homepage. Transcribimus is a network of volunteer transcribers who take hand written documents of our early Vancouver history and transcribe them into a searchable state available for free to the general public and researchers.

This entire initiative would not be possible without our volunteer transcribers. We thank them!

We also thank our sponsors who are also critical to the success of the project.

We are so pleased to have been featured in the following media:

We hope you will enjoy exploring your history through our website. There is so much more to do. We hope to expand our service to other handwritten documents of our history.

Perhaps you might consider becoming a volunteer yourself. Together our remarkable volunteers have contributed 335 transcriptions of early Vancouver City Council minutes, as follows:
