Thank you to everyone who participated in the last Transcription Challenge! Everyone provided helpful feedback and suggestions! To change things up for the new set of challenges, we have added some occupations and locations! You can participate by going to the “Transcription Challenge” tab at the top of the page and submitting your suggestions in the comments.

It is always really interesting and helpful to see how everyone transcribes this tricky handwriting! After going through every response, the names we have settled on are:

1. Henihan

2. McGuert, McGuerty

3. Julla, Julia

4. Harrison

5. Thersir, Tessier

6. Thomas

We appreciate everyone’s help and are excited to see the suggestions for the next set of challenges!
