About the Project

We are encouraging members of the public to create transcriptions of archive material. Transcriptions make records more accessible, opening them up to a wider audience. These records contain information about the people and places in Scotland and give details of everything from pet dogs in the eighteenth century to ancient Scottish monsters.

Come and have a look and why not take part? We welcome all new transcribers whatever their experience might be. Simply register below. Happy transcribing!
