Thank you to everyone who participated in the last Transcription Challenge! Everyone provided helpful feedback and suggestions! Please check out our new set of challenges by going to the “Transcription Challenge” tab at the top of the page and submitting your suggestions in the comments.
This set of challenges was tricky! The spellings might not be 100% correct, but the search tool for our databases is flexible enough for these names to show up in the results for anyone searching for other spellings.
After discussing the possibilities with others, and going back and forth on the letters many times, the names we have settled on are:
1 – Breneeser
2 – Durish
3a – Maria F. Giblin
3b – Florant
4 – McKurliss
5 – Piram Jarvis
6 – Dengue
Thanks again for your help! We look forward to your suggestions for the next set of challenges!
