Transcribe Historic Documents

Participate in the National Archives (NARA)  Transcription Pilot Project!  Contributing transcriptions will make historical documents more accessible to the public.
The Transcription Pilot features over 300 documents ranging from the late 18th century through the 20th century including letters to a Civil War spy, various acts and laws, presidential records, suffrage petitions, indictments, and fugitive slave case files.

Documenta are categorized as beginner, intermediate, or advanced and by status of transcription – “Not Yet Started,” “Partially Transcribed,” and “Completed.”

There is a "Transcription Tips" page, an FAQ, and a "Policy" page.

Visit the NARAtions Blog for more news from The National Archives.
