We were notified by Jeanie Fisher of the City of Seattle Municipal
Archive about their project of transcribing City Records and their
need of help:
We have an online crowdsourcing project to transcribe early handwritten City of Seattle Records. Anyone who can read handwriting and is interested in joining the project is welcome! Some of our early petitions, letters, claims, and reports contain nuggets of gold for genealogists researching Seattle-area ancestors. The project encourages participants to discover and index names and other information in the documents, which makes them more accessible to everyone.
The project is available here: https://fromthepage.com/sma-archives. Volunteer transcribers can create a free account, pick a document, start reading and transcribe what they see.
Contact info on this project is: Jeanie Fisher, Reference Archivist at Jean.Fisher@seattle.gov
