About

The mission of the Wilford Woodruff Papers Foundation is to collect, transcribe, publish, and digitally preserve Wilford Woodruff's records. These documents represent a very small portion of Wilford Woodruff's Papers. As these documents are transcribed, completed documents will be taken down and replaced with other documents needing transcription. We welcome volunteers willing to share their time and talents in transcribing these documents. What skills are needed? The ability to read nineteenth-century handwriting, basic computer skills and the self-discipline to finish a page once started.

Project-specific Instructions: Transcribe each document exactly as written. Preserve spelling, punctuation, and all words as they are in the document. If a word is illegible, write "illegible" and click on the unclear button. If you can determine certain letters but not the whole word, please write "illegible" rather than a word that doesn't make sense. If a word is written in what appears to be a form of shorthand, write {shorthand} and continue with the rest of the document. Use the text editor buttons to indicate superscripts, underlines and strikethroughs. Never click "Autolink." When you are finished with a page, click the "Done" button. Please complete one letter before beginning another letter. Tables in the original documents are reproduced in the transcription using the table encoding format taught in this link.

Thank you for your willingness to assist in the transcription effort and in the larger mission of making Wilford Woodruff's Papers available to a worldwide audience. We appreciate your contributions. Please contact transcribe@wilfordwoodruffpapers.org with any questions.
