They are looking for digital volunteers to help transcribe their repository of historical documents – journals, letters, and more. Visit the Smithsonian’s Transcription Center and sign up as a volunteer. You can contribute to a larger work (transcribing a volume or a book) or work on smaller assignments, such as a letter or a note.

This a great opportunity to contribute to preserving our heritage electronically and helping to provide broader access of this content to the public.

    Transcribing Historical Documents would be great if it wasn’t for my super busy sked, I would love to be a volunteer. Anyways, I suggest using a tool for fast and easy way to transcribe, try Song Surgeon. Hope I help you guys in a little way. Good luck 🙂
