The Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine will be holding its first-ever Transcription Tuesday event on 17 January 2017.
They will be asking family historians to set some time aside to contribute towards one of several online transcription projects – even if it’s just for half an hour.
Members of staff from the WDYTYA? Magazine team have picked an initiative to support and will head up their own ‘team’ of transcribers, working remotely from home. Cynefin has been lucky enough to be picked as one of the initiatives to support by Andy Williams, Sales Executive for WDYTYA? Magazine. Andy explains his reason for choosing Cynefin; “Raised in Barry with parents from the Rhondda, Welsh family history is a project particularly close to my heart. As a born-and-bred Welshman, I chose this project for Transcription Tuesday to help researchers finding their Welsh lineage and aid in building such a vast database.” You can find a blog and a quick Cynefin tutorial by Andy here:
