2024 Travel Diaries Transcribe-A-Thon
To celebrate the warmer weather and the beginning of Spring and Summer travel season, for this Transcribe-A-Thon we will be transcribing travel diaries! These diaries contain the itineraries of Sandy Spring residents as they traveled to various destinations around the world, such as the American West, Mexico, and Europe. Each traveler’s recorded personal experiences provides researchers with information on historical traveling practices, the historical environments of their destinations, and cultural exchanges. With the oldest diary going all the way back to 1792, these diaries also demonstrate the stress and dangers of traveling in the past that we take for granted today. Come join us as we travel to the past and transcribe these fascinating diaries!
