Why transcribe with Free UK Genealogy?

Because we:

  • Ensure our transcriptions are high quality,
  • Are an Open Data organisation, and thus your transcriptions reach the widest possible audience, in the most innovative ways,
  • Are among the oldest, most respected, crowd-sourced transcription organisations/projects in the world,
  • Have such a range of materials - from medieval Latin to modern print, from the free-form of early Church Registers to the consistent format of the BMD indexes - this means that whatever your skill level, and however much your skill increases, we have documents to transcribe that fit your level, or can stretch you,
  • Are a charity,
  • Are volunteer-led,
  • And we are increasingly enabling volunteering online.
