    Transcription template: Carded Service Records mission

    National Archives Catalog Scout

      Our latest transcription mission, Carded Service Records of Hospital Attendants, Matrons and Nurses 1861-1865, consists of a standard typewritten form with handwritten details. Would you like to transcribe these records more efficiently? Try using our template for transcription!

       

      For these records, we’ve created a template for the standard typewritten form found on each card. Simply copy and paste the text below into the transcription field and fill in the handwritten details according to what you see on the record.

       

      Here’s the text to copy and paste into the transcription field:

      We transcribe records to increase searchability in the National Archives Catalog.  As a result the format and spacing isn’t important and you can leave in the extra spaces leftover from the template.
