ASMC Virtual Community Service Event


Friday, February 4, 2022

12PM – 2PM via Microsoft Teams Meeting


Let’s get together and make history!




We invite you to join your fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members as we transcribe digitized collections from the Smithsonian museums from the comfort of your home or office.  You are welcome to join for the entire time or part of the time and you can continue transcribing after the event or later.


This is an outstanding opportunity to learn more about our history by transcribing historical documents. Volunteers will look at a scanned image of a document usually containing handwritten and/or typed information and document what they see for future viewing and research.  No previous experience is required and all information will be provided in advance of the event.


To sign up for this exciting event, please send an email to Jeff Norris (External link opens in new tab or and Chris Pritchett (External link opens in new tab or, both fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members no later than February 2, 2022.
