Hi Jo, Very glad to have found this thread as I will be trying to transcribe for Wiltshire when the disc arrives. I can see I may well need help! You have already solved one of my worries by explaining how to send copy to the co-ordinator. Thanks Jo, Rosemary(Essex)

Hi Ann, I've had something similar. Could it be Un or Uh for uninhabited. If there is a schedule number in column E it might be uninhabited in which case you put u in column H. You can also add a comment in column Y. If it's definitely 3b I can't help!!!! Hope someone with more experience can give us a clue. It's all good fun isn't it?????? Von transcribing 1861 Lincs

Having transcribed quite a lot for this worthy cause,there should be some instructions on how to enter data etc that is On-line via Free Cens. Or, your co-ordinator would be able to send you a sheet. All the 1891 for Cornwall is on-line and 1841 almost completed and 1861 on the go. Generally transcribe what is there - even if you know it to be wrong - for instance a place name. As the input will be checked don't worry about it, just get it into the programme and off to be checked Diane

Hi All to you Happy Band of TC's An answere from Carol to my querIf the enumerator has written 3b then you type Sched 0,if no address - a hyphen in the address column and then in the next one letter b. This lets the researcher know it was a building of some sort. You need to allocate 3 lines --retyping the same on each one Regards Ann

~Von~ Report 30 Mar 2004 22:20

Hi Karen If you type an apostrophe before the hyphen and then tab to the next column it just leaves a hyphen. Von

Sounds a bit confusing that Karen, I would note the line number, so you can get to it easier, and ask whats best to put!!! I supose its how the enumerator has expressed it. You seem to be going hammer and tongs at this, best of luck! Havent had much time myself and only been on the computer for snatches. I'm sure the Cds will arrive shortly for all who are waiting......

Well, I have started transcribing. It is a bit fiddley to start with. But the notes that I downloaded from Terry's site were very useful. I also went to Cyndi's list and downloaded the parishes etc - that helped a LOT. I have done approx half a page - not bad considering I have got a runny nose and have to keep blowing it!! Just hope I am doing it correctly. Kathy
