Palmer Travel Journal Challenge
*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 08/25/2020
Every Tuesday, the CSPM will post a new journal entry from the Palmer journal on our Facebook page with a link to our website. Transcribe the handwriting and send it to us at email@example.com
- Compare words and letters throughout the page to confirm you are reading the text correctly.
- Consider the context, how can the rest of the story help you figure out a difficult word?
- If you are stuck on a word, just write [illegible] and then move on to the next word.
- Have fun! If you don’t get a word right, no need to worry! We are crowd-sourcing these transcriptions so that together – we will figure out all the words. Archivists and curators do this as well, we have multiple people transcribe the same historic document to ensure accuracy.
