Magazine are looking for volunteers to take part in a global indexing day to help unlock the potential of thousands of family history documents. If you have ever benefited from free online resources, now is your chance to give something back to future family historians. Transcribe from the comfort of your own home. All you need is internet access. You can take part for as long as you want during the day, whether it’s just half an hour or half a day! Full information about Transcription Tuesday can be found at: Why not get together with others and share the experience? Transcription Tuesday was launched in 2017 by Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine, to encourage family and local historians to get involved in transcription projects. “The internet has transformed family history,” said editor Sarah Williams, “but the documents that are going online need to be transcribed or indexed to make them searchable, and for many projects the only way that is going to happen is with the help of volunteers.”
