Transcribe-A-Thon!

Grab your tablet or laptop and join us for the first-ever NHA Transcribe-A-Thon!

You’ll learn how to join the NHA Volunteer Transcription Program, get tips and guidelines for interpreting historic handwriting, and have the opportunity to practice transcribing with others.

This program will also feature show and tell with our Research Library team displaying some of the projects for participants to view in person.  As well as a pen and ink hands-on calligraphy station for all ages to enjoy!

Stay tuned for new projects being added weekly to the NHA’s crowdsourcing manuscript transcription service From the Page, leading up to the program.
