Wake County Genealogical Society Announces Transcription Workshop on June 29

By popular request, WCGS is pleased to announce a 2-hour workshop for everyone interested in learning about transcribing historical documents.  This is a skill useful for both producing material for our Wake Treasures journal as well as for our own family history research.  

The program will consist of a presentation with tips and examples followed by a live hands-on transcription (with a buddy) session.  Coming to this workshop does not obligate you to participate in future sessions, but we are looking forward to possibly meeting on a regular basis to work together on transcriptions for our award winning journal, Wake Treasures.  Everyone is welcome! The workshop is FREE!

All skill levels are welcome!  Please bring a laptop to the session if you have one (not required).  You are welcome to remain in the library following the workshop for additional help or to do research. Olivia Raney library is open until 2pm on Saturdays.  If you have questions, please contact Carla Stancil at

Date:  Saturday, June 29, 2019
Time:  10am – 12 noon ET
Where:  Olivia Raney Local History Library, Raleigh, NC

Hope to see you there!
