A Sandy Spring Summer Transcribe-a-thon

Monday, July 18, 2022 at 10:00 am 3:00 pm

An old ink drawing from the archives of a person reading a book.

Explore the history of Sandy Spring through transcription! Transcribe original archival documents, helping to make these fascinating and important artifacts searchable and accessible to all. 

For our July and August transcribe-a-thons, we are diving into all things summer with a few featured items from our archives. Explore documents from three historic local children’s camps active from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. We will also feature items from the Horticultural Society, which began in the late 19th century and is still active today! Read and transcribe along to discover the secrets to the perfect Sandy Spring summer.

On the day of the event, the Museum’s Transcription Coordinator will be available via Zoom to answer your questions and help you through the transcription process. You do not have to stay for the entire two hours in each session or arrive at the start.  Feel free to drop in and work for as long as you like.

This opportunity is appropriate for ages 13 and up.  Many documents require the ability to read and transcribe cursive.  SSL hours are available.

For accommodation requests, please contact the museum via email or at 301-774-0022
