Many of you know we transcribe cemetery records to make them available worldwide on the Internet. We do this on an ongoing basis, with folks working from home.
In the past, we have gathered for an afternoon session to do this work, with instruction and advice for new team members from SFBAJGS board members and others. This year we will meet virtually, with instructions and advice over Zoom. It’s our first virtual time, so we’ll see how well it works!
If you would like to help with our transcriptions, you need a PC or Mac with Microsoft Excel and Adobe Reader. That’s all!
We will start our Zoom session at 1:00 p.m. and will keep the session open until 4:30 p.m. so that you can ask questions as you go along.
Jeff Lewy will start with a brief slide show of how to do the work and then will distribute a piece of work to each participant. It is not necessary that you finish a task during the session — you can work on it after the session and stay in contact with Jeff via e-mail. We will use Zoom chat and regular e-mail to stay in contact throughout the session, and then e-mail after that.
Those of you who have helped before are welcome to join the session, and we also encourage new team members to join.
We ask you to register in advance, so we can have an idea of how many people we need to support.
