Loopy - No gave up and decided time would be better spent transcribing, going away for a couple of days very soon, so need a big fix to tide me over the withdrawl. Mavis

Mavis.. Do you think Lynda will be joining us? Hope you enjoy your holiday...yes you will have withdrawal symptoms I would suggest that you slowly wean yourself down day by day and do less and less each day that way you might be able to cope better while your away lol Loopy :~)

Hope she becomes a transcriber, it's so depressing to gointo FreeBMD and find the year you are interested in is only partially transcribed, and so good when you check a few months later and lo, there is the birth you wanted and you can get the certificate ordered. so WE NEED MORE TRANSCRIBERS. As for becoming an addict.... is it inevitable ....think it might be. No chance of weaning, off tomorrow morning, big dose beforehand is only option. Mavis

Lol Denise.... Tips For Transcribing????? Get anything done that needs doing that day BEFORE you put PC on lol otherwise once its on You will be stuck to your chair for Hours and get NOTHING done after that lmao So Make a flask of Tea / Coffee or get a BIG bottle Juice..........Ashtray, Ciggy's & Lighter / lighters Incase one breaks you wont have to get up and find one that works........Go the Loo even if you dont really need to..............chuck dog / cat outside so they not pester you for attention..........send kids to grandparents for same reason as animals..............turn volume up on TV so neighbours cant hear you shouting at PC coz of bad spellings / Writing..........Sit back ...Flex your fingers.......and type type type.......pmsl Loopy :~)

Hi Lesley, Yes, I read through the other thread and tried the district no thing,. It does save time. Got 1858 handwritten ones today and they are sure a lot qucker than the typed versions.It took me a while to work out that all the info for the header page is in the scan code. The typed ones were dated and numbered and easier to read but a lot longer. Do you upload one at a time or in batches. What do they prefare? Keep the tips coming lol Denise.
