Today we launch the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (http://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist/) & encourage you to get involved in elevating the visibility of the records of the United States.
Did you know that many grade school children arenât taught cursive handwriting anymore & canât read cursive?Â Help us transcribe records & guarantee that school children can make use of our documents.Â I'm will have transcribed one myself!
Recognize someone or someplace in one of our photographs?Â Add a tag!
Have a photograph in your personal collection you want to contribute?Â Upload it!
Have you been researching in the records?Â Share what youâve discovered!Â Write an article & post it to the Dashboard so other people can learn from your work.
This is very much a work in progress and we are interested in your ideas for improving the Dashboard.Â Other activities we might include?Â Send us your suggestions or comments:Â firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will will am HUGE fan of the wisdom of the crowd.Â Donât disappoint me!
