Transcribing projects of our Rootsweb Group- get involved.

This group has always actively worked on transcribing records to help further genealogical research in the Missisquoi area  !

In the past we have transcribe Canadian census years and microfilmed Notary records , we have recently been working on scanned parish records at Family Search from churches in our area.

 We have to date transcribed in full text over 5,000 records

We always can use help, it's easy anyone can do it you don't need to know anything technical or have any special software you just need the internet a document client ( MS Word, word pad, outlook etc )

This is one of our current projects of our Missisquoi Rootsweb group. We believe in giving back to those that helped us and making it easier for others researching in the area.

If you'd like to volunteer to transcribe please take one of the 25 image batches from Saint Armand Methodist 1837-1870 records you see below.

We use a snazzy volunteer sign up site called Sign up Genius !


The images are on Family Search .org and you can find them through this link. here

 Instructions : Just put your image number into top right box and it will bring you to the 1st image # in your batch.

Below is what they look like, you just transcribe the exact text. Don’t worry about formatting or anything else, you can just type directly into any word /text document you want to use. (even into email )
 If you can’t read a name or word just make a note and put an *around the word and we’ll figure it out later ! These will be posted for all to see on our Missisquoi Genealogy Research Blog and later the facts will be extracted into Excel database.
