About the TranscribeNC Project

This collection of letters provides a glimpse into the lives of North Carolina women as they changed history in our state and the nation during the 20th century. It focuses on documents gathered from across the holdings of the State Archives, including Private Collections, Organization Records, and State Agency Records. While this collection provides an overview of the materials available, it is not an exhaustive survey of women's history materials at the State Archives.

How to Help Transcribe Documents

The transcription conventions, or “rules,” are located at the bottom of every page in the transcription view.

For more information, check out our Transcription Guide, Handwriting Guide, or the FromThePage transcription demo video
