Thanks to the person who started this thread, I have just registered to transcribe for FREEBMD. Been meaning to do it for ages but thought it was going to be difficult. After reading all the helpful advise on this thread, I took the plunge and am now registered with Jeff Coleman and have just transcribed my first page. Luckily I was given a typed page to start with, and it was so easy. Bet I'm not so lucky next time! Anyone thinking of joining should go for it. They need all the help they can get with this great project. I now feel that I am paying back for all the effort others have made for me and others. Wendy

I did it briefly, is easy, just need to be 'thorough' (for want of a better word) - remembering that people are relying on you to get the information correct.

Wendy Report 26 Jul 2006 20:32

Did my test yesterday afternoon, got my first transcription today. Typed page, so took me about an hour. Jeff Coleman wants to check it first before I upload it to FREEBMD. Can't wait to get going. Wendy
