I recently received an email from the National Archives regarding a need for volunteers to help transcribe and tag items in the archives catalog. What an awesome opportunity to help digitize historical records! With the holiday season approaching, this opportunity is a wonderful way to give back to the genealogy community by helping to make available some of the U.S.’ national treasures! Not sure where to start? I say, just follow your heart – check out the Transcription Missions and select whichever area interests you. The directions are simple – just click here and the easy to follow instructions will get you on your way to doing a very good deed.
