IN ORDER TO HAVE REQUESTS ACCEPTED, MEMBERSHIP IN TRANSCRIBE GROUP IS REQUIRED. TO APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP, PLEASE VISIT
< http://groups.yahoo.com/group/transcribe/ >
Below is a data entry template that all MEMBERS are required to complete before a request can be accepted.
***Please do not leave any of the entry fields blank. If you do not know the answer for any field, state that in the appropriate field. SCAN NAME should match the subject line of your announcement message and be unique to your request, including pertinent information. If there is more than one page involved in your request, please label EACH page in order...page 1, page 2, etc. DOCUMENT TYPE would be baptism, marriage, death, etc. DOCUMENT DATE is the date of the event in the image and not the date the request is posted.***
Easy steps to follow:
Step 1: Ensure your scan does not exceed 500 kb, but is large and clear enough to read.
Step 2: Upload image to your folder.
Step 3: Complete and submit the member form
Step 4: Post a message or send an email to the group describing your scan and your needs to the list.
Step 5: Be patient.
PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT THE FORM MULTIPLE TIMES. IT IS CONFUSING AND MAY RESULT IN YOUR REQUEST BEING DISCARDED.
At the bottom of the page, a security precaution is included to preserve the integrity of the database. You will be required to type the letters, as shown, in the rectangular box below the words. If what you have typed matches the words as shown, your form will be submitted. If not, you will receive two additional words. If you cannot read the words, there is a small column of three blue buttons to the right of the words. The top button will allow two different words to be displayed.
MEMBERS will still be required to post an announcement message on the Yahoo Transcribe Group. When you post that message, use a subject line that is specific to your request. Volunteers will use that message to respond with their work so the message must be easily identifiable.
Failure to either complete this form or post a separate announcement message may result in your request being rejected.
