You can get in touch with us to have photos of a handwritten document e-mailed to you, or you can choose one of the selections above and get to work right away. Please don’t feel you have to finish an entire long document – a page or two is a welcome contribution.
Reading old-fashioned cursive handwriting isn’t the easiest thing in the world. If you can’t make out a word, just type in “unreadable” and keep on going. You can e-mail us for help or get a second opinion on our facebook group.
When you send in your work, we will ask you if you want your name published or stay anonymous when we post the results of what you have transcribed.
Don’t forget to join us on facebook and tell us about your transcribing experience!
