Taming Transcription
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
  • Presenter: Michelle D. NovakMichelle D Novak
  • Webinar Description: Transcribing from original documents can unlock events, actions and sentiments that haven't been expressed since they were first written--and that may shed entirely new light on your ancestors' lives. But learning a manageable system for your transcription work can make the difference between enjoyment and chaos. In this session, Michelle D. Novak will share a large transcription project currently underway, one that started with one New Jersey Supreme Court case involving an ancestor and has now grown to dozens of individual and related case files (still with no end in sight). Using only scans saved to PDFs of the documents and MS Word, she has devised a three-step process to staying organized through rounds of transcription and proofreading.
  • Register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5314503026474542338 
After registering, you will receive an email with information and a link to join us the night of the webinar. Please remember that this is a first-come, first-served webinar, and that there are a limited number of spots to view the webinar live.  Registering does not hold a spot for you.  Those that log in first will be admitted to the webinar.
