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 family history records making them more easily searchable and accessible for family and history research.

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

Bring your own laptop or tablet.

This program will be continuing virtually all year long! Watch the introductory video, set up an account with From the Page, and start transcribing! Instructions below.
