Crowdsourcing Scotland's historic archives

Thousands of volunteers are being sought to help transcribe historic archives in the largest crowdsourcing project of its kind in Scotland.

The idea is to help detail the information on more than 150,000 pages of historic archives dating from 1645 to 1880.
