Using the site we’ll turn digitised files held by the National Archives of Australia into new data for research and exploration – but we need your help!
Come to our Transcribe-a-thon
We’ll be launching the site at a Transcribe-a-thon on the 9-10 September at the Museum of Australian Democracy in Old Parliament House. Bring your laptops and join in as we see how many documents we can transcribe in a weekend! We’ll also have a program of expert speakers discussing the records and their significance. Come along and learn more about the history of the White Australia Policy.

The transcription site will go live on 9 September, so check back here then for the link. We have more than 13,000 documents to classify and transcribe, so there’s plenty of work for everyone! Why not organise your own local transcribe-a-thon?
