Sign up to take part in our first ever #TranscriptionTuesday event on 17 January 2017

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine is going to be running its first-ever Transcription Tuesday event on 17 January 2017.

Throughout the day, we’ll be asking family historians to set some time aside to contribute towards one of several online transcription projects – even if it's just for half an hour.

Each member of staff has picked an initiative to support and will head up their own ‘team’ of transcribers, working remotely from home. We've also written blog posts, outlining the reasons for our choices and why you should join our projects:
