- Why transcribe?
- What manuscripts are available to transcribe?
Holdings are strongest for Chicago and the Midwest, with over 500 collections in these areas. Consequently, many of the items included on this site are drawn from our Midwest Manuscripts Collection and provide first-hand accounts of everyday life in the Midwest during the 19th century. However, the site also includes items not specific to a single region, including the collected papers of a multi-generational family, the Everetts, whose members crisscrossed the country, settling in South Carolina, Kansas, and beyond.
