It’s Wednesday! That means we’ve published a new project for keying. As part of our on-going commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, our project this week is Georgia, Civil War Correspondence, 1847-1865.
Before you start keying, take a look at the project page. You’ll see that there are four main form types. We are keying a minimal amount of information – names, correspondence dates, and a location when it exists. But, if you are anything like me, I’m sure you’ll get caught up reading these letters with great fascination. I’ve even Googled several of these men and the locations and events they are talking about because I wanted to learn more. It’s been quite the history lesson.
Until next time – Happy Keying!
