About the Collection
This collection includes World War I letters (correspondence) from the consistently expanding collections of the State Library and State Archives of North Carolina. To help with context, like names of places or people in the original documents, here are links to blogs written by our Military Archivist for select service members.
How to Help Transcribe Documents
The transcription conventions, or “rules,” are located at the bottom of every page in the transcription view.
When transcriptions are finalized and exported out of FromThePage, they will be added to the digitized items in the North Carolina Digital Collections. Here are a few examples of what that looks like! These are real transcriptions finished by TranscribeNC volunteers just like yourself. Click the word Transcript below the image of the item to view the transcription.
- European Journal, Volume 2, 1859
- Local Draft Board Records, Macon County
- Appalachian Training School
