North Carolina Family History Transcription Project

I received an email from Taneya at NC GenWeb about the North Carolina Family History Transcription Project. I think the project is a wonderful idea and I wanted to pass the details along to all of you.

The project is a pilot effort launched by the NC Government & Heritage Library. Staff members have uploaded images of documents onto Flickr (you can find the page here), and they are asking for volunteers to help transcribe them.

As of this posting, approximately 164 documents have been uploaded onto the Flickr site. While some of them have already been transcribed, there are many more available for anyone who is interested in helping.

If you're interested, all you need to do is log into your Flickr account and leave your transcriptions as a comment.
