Transcribe the Collections

Manuscript Transcription Initiative

Help us transcribe historical materials from the NHA manuscript collection!

As we upload our collection of ships’ logs to the crowdsourcing manuscript transcription service From the Page, follow along on whaling voyages from the comfort of your own home!

Sound interesting? Get started with these steps:

  1. Create a free account.

2. Take a look at our From the Page transcription projects.

3. Review our transcription guidelines. It’s easy!

4. Start transcribing!

This work is made possible thanks to a visionary gift from Connie and Tom Ciggaran, who understand and value how digitization and transcription help make our collections available and accessible to all.
