Transcribimus volunteers work with photos of the original handwritten minutes of Vancouver from their beginnings in 1886. Some transcribe the entire set of minutes so it can be read by computers and by the growing number of people who can’t read cursive handwriting.

Other volunteers read through the transcripts and add their own thoughts and comments. Some help us summarize the contents, some research pictures to go with them. There are endless ways to contribute to our shared understanding of Vancouver history. Please get in touch with us or join us on facebook to find out more.

Our remarkable volunteers have contributed 323 sets of minutes to date, as follows:
