The letter I'm transcribing refers to "Mrs. Howe." I'm fairly certain this refers to Julia Ward Howe, and I wanted to enter her full name in a tag. Do I somehow indicate in the text that her full name is typed in a tag? Thanks

I have been working in Anna Dickinson since July in the "in progress" section. Each day I start there and have started to notice that after I save and submit, some of the pages I worked on end up back in "in progress". I do not think this is a glitch in the system but someone may be reviewing and then putting it back in "in progress". I think this… (Show more)

When reviewing and/or transcribing, if the letter head is in all capital letters, do we transcribed or edit it to be exactly the same? Also when we do letter head do we do spacing differently. I have typed out the information as well as added the link below. Please advise and thank you in advance for your help!   ANSWERED, AUG 11 1918 THE… (Show more)

This is for the moderators. I have come across documents many times where the author has numbers written near phrases where it appears her intention is to change the order of the phrases. I posted one such page below. Many times when I have reviewed I have seen transcribers change the order of the phrases to what the numbers call for. Do you want… (Show more)

I’m aware that the policy is to transcribe even not related material, but this would be incomplete and make no sense. the item I am referring to is… (Show more)

I have found 2 items, for a total of 4 pages, that need to be fixed even though they're marked as complete. As a retired tech writer and occasional tech editor, it bothers me to see all the errors. I could fix them pretty quickly if they were not marked "Complete." Is that possible?   Here are the two items:   National American Woman Suffrage… (Show more)

I've read through the instructions and searched the discussions, but I cannot find an answer to my question. When should a document be submitted for review? I've been working on "in progress" documents, and often there are illegible words remaining that I am unable to make out. Do I just save my work and move on, or do I "submit for review"? I've… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am new to this project, so I apologize if I am out of place. However, I was encouraged Henry Rosenberg to post any tips I may have.   It may be helpful to provide a link to an example of the long s (in addition to the explanation of it) in the "How to Transcribe" instructions. I just reviewed a document that contained a few words using the long… (Show more)
