Subject: [VANLANDINGHAM-L] Announcing Immigrant Ships Transcribers Site
Date: Wed, 28 Oct 1998 22:08:27 -0600
This is to advise you that a new website is being developed by a group called
THE IMMIGRANT SHIPS TRANSCRIBERS GUILD. This is a group of over 100 volunteers
who have decided to transcribe NARA microfilmed passenger lists so that
everyone on the internet can have free access to such lists. In addition, the
GUILD is receiving donations of lists which have already been transcribed from
people on the internet and from webmasters. The GUILD is also preparing links
to many sites dealing with ships and passengers lists throughout the world.
As of this date, there have been over 50 lists transcribed by volunteers,
another 100 in the works, 100 lists donated to the site, and many sites
agreeing to link their ships and sites.
If you have a transcribed list you would like like to donate, you can contact
Joan Rasanen, Resource Coordinator at giving her the name of
the ship, the ports of departure and arrival as well as the dates of each
, and your e-mail address.
