Black History Month Transcribe-a-thon
Monday, February 20, 2023 at 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
This is a virtual program.
Explore the history of Sandy Spring through transcription! For more than 300 years, the Sandy Spring area has been home to generations of African and African American families. In honor of Black History Month, we seek your help in uncovering some of these family stories awaiting discovery by transcribing historic documents.
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.
