The Staten Island Museum has partnered with the Staten Island Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society and Frederick Douglass Memorial Park to transcribe newly digitized burial records making them more easily searchable and accessible for families and historical research. But we need your help!

A transcribe-a-thon is an event in which people gather to work simultaneously on a transcription project. No previous experience is required, training will be provided.

Bring your own device: laptop or tablet.
