Description

Transcription Tuesday - Who Do you Think You Are? Magazine
Following the successful 2017 Transcription Tuesday event Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine are organising another Transcription Tuesday for next week the 23rd January. Family historians from around the globe are encouraged to transcribe digitised records online.

Their editorial team has chosen five projects to support, three of which focus on First World War records, as the world continues to commemorate its centenary. The projects are:
• Europeana 1914 – 1918
• Cardiganshire First World War Tribunal (Appeals) Records
• Bedfordshire Workhouse and Poor Law Records
• Parish Registers with FamilySearch
• Measuring the ANZACs

This is a great opportunity to bring together the whole family history community and make these documents accessible to future generations of family historians.

Edwina Shooter and I have decided to have an ad hoc digitising day at WAGS May St next Tuesday from noon. So come along and join us indexing records, learn how to read older text and enter data online via computer, and also have a great time getting to know each other and learning about family history research.

We have decided that we would support familysearch digitizing English parish records as most members have had to chase these records somewhere in the UK, and beyond.

So for information about the Transcription Day, here is the link:             www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/transcriptiontuesday


Now to participate in indexing familysearch records you will need to create an account; which you now need to search familysearch records anyway. Please create your account before you come to WAGS. Instructions can be found at:

So come along and join Edwina and I for part or all of Tuesday afternoon.

We will make tea, coffee and biscuits available to keep us fuelled and raring to go.

Please let me know if you are coming for planning purposes. My address to use is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
