Transcribe Archives

About the Project

The Transcribe ScotlandsPlaces project is encouraging members of the public to help create transcriptions of various resources in the website. These resources are images of historic archives which contain handwritten information about the people and places in Scottish history. We welcome you to take a look at the work that's been done by the various individuals taking part in the project. We also welcome you to register, join a group, and begin transcribing today.

Registering for Transcribe ScotlandsPlaces and giving between 1 and 2 hours per week of your time gives you free access to the entire site resources. Please register as normal and your registration will be updated to include the subscription resources within 72 hours. 

Would you like to become a transcriber?

Please use our transcriptions feedback form if you have any further queries or suggestions.
