Great question and as some of us work on only factual websites via Consulting projects being added to the internet for the first time. I have one such coming up regarding military records of those never mentioned, awarded, recognized before due to sex and ethnicity for a Professor/Author.
Perhaps a section "Data by our Citizen Archivists" type of thing.

That's a great question. Only records that are found in the National Archives can be added to the National Archives Catalog. Of the billions of records we have only 140+ million have been added to the Catalog or have been digitized and added to the Catalog. We are adding records to the Catalog every day.
Unfortunately, the format of electronic records often do not lend themselves for transcription. Many electronic records are data sets and can not be transcribed in our system.
I recommend you contact the Electronic Records reference staff - firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them about these specific records. They can let you know if we have the records, when they expect to be uploaded to the Catalog and if they are in a format that is conducive to transcription.
