NARA -- You Can Transcribe It! Project


Are you helping NARA transcribe our nation’s documents yet?  If not, do check out the You Can Transcribe It Page!

The posted documents range across time periods, places and types of documents and in transcribing skill range from beginner to advanced.  A nice feature of the site is that not only can you see those documents “available” for you to help with, you can review documents already transcribed by others and help improve upon those already transcribed (if needed). 

If you have already participated – let us know how it went?
