The Transcription Challenge



The Transcription Challenge is a unique way to volunteer.  As AmericanAncestors.org transcribes the Massachusetts:  Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1798-1900, they have discovered some very difficult words to transcribe.   Knowing the old saying “Many hands make light work” and “Two heads are better than one” are true, weekly during the summer, a new transcription challenge will be posted with the undecipherable area circled in red.  So far, 4 challenges are available.  All you need to do is take a look and make a comment of what you think is written for the appropriate number of the problem’s name.   This is a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!  Give it a try…
