TRANSCRIBING NATIONAL ARCHIVE OF AUSTRALIA RECORDS - ARCHIVE
The National Archives of Australia is looking for volunteers to help transcribe records. They have created a special section on their website called arcHIVE for anyone interested in transcribing records. To make the process easier, every document awaiting transcription is identified as easy, medium or hard. You also have the option of choosing the type of record that you would like to transcribe. This allows transcribers to work at their own pace and comfort level from their own home. What could be easier? See more at http://transcribe.naa.gov.au/
Next issue of the Hawkesbury Crier is due for December 2013. Would you like to submit an article, enquiry or notice about a reunion? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Deadline is 2 December 2013.
