Diane Richard-smallAccurate Transcriptions for Historical Records

Diane L. Richard, ME, MBA

In this webinar, Diane L. Richard, editor of the NCGS Journal, will provide a virtual training for transcribing historical materials that are used in genealogical research and to produce publishable materials.
The key element for transcribing documents is ACCURACY. This means writing what you see in the actual document without interjecting personal inferences. This presentation will also provide examples, tips, tricks, and resources of best practices in document transcription.

Diane Richard is currently working on developing a handbook to go with this webinar. It should be available here by the end of 2016.
