Together We Can Do It!

We just launched the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (http://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist/).  We encourage you to get involved in elevating the visibility of the records of the United States. Did you know that many grade school children aren’t taught cursive handwriting anymore and can’t read cursive?  Help us transcribe records and guarantee that school children can make use of our documents.  I have transcribed one myself!

No?  Of course some people’s cursive writing can’t be read by anyone at all, but still, I didn’t know it wasn’t even being taught anymore in some cases. I wonder who is taught and who is not? Anyway, interesting and worthy project.
