Making History with LVA - Transcribe-a-versary Celebration

Making History with LVA - Transcribe-a-versary Celebration

Join us for our yearly celebration of LVA's crowdsourcing programs, featuring guest speakers and archivists! For this event, we will publish newly digitized records from Richmond-area historic Black cemeteries for transcription. Guest speakers including Dr. Ryan K. Smith and members of the Descendants' Council of Greater Richmond will provide historical information and context for these collections. Guided by Library staff members, volunteers will transcribe handwritten pages from the cemetery records and other collections by reading the text and typing it into digital form. Boxed lunches will be provided.

Contact Sonya Coleman for more information at makinghistory@virginiamemory.com or call Hands On Greater Richmond at 804-330-7400.
