We are excited you’d like to help us as a Citizen Archivist. We have many volunteer opportunities to transcribe and tag historical records online in the National Archives Catalog. This work can be done online from any computer, anywhere, at any time. You can do as little or as much as you want. Everything helps!
If you are new to transcribing and tagging, take a look at our Register and Get Started page to sign up for an account, and we also recommend visiting our Resources page on our dashboard. This page contains step-by-step instructions, as well as video tutorials and guides to walk you through the process.
You might also find our Getting Started videos helpful: https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist/resources#videos
You can visit our Citizen Archivist Missions page anytime where we always have missions and individual records to work on. We update this page on a regular basis, so check back often to see what's new.
If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org We are happy to help answer specific questions as you begin to contribute.
Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to your contributions!
