***UPDATE: The Plaskitt letters are now fully transcribed thank you. Another expedition has been added “MG Goldring’s letter to his wife, WWII”. Please click the link the below.

“DigiVol” is an online platform created by the Australian Museum that allows online volunteers to assist with transcription and identification.

Shore Archives has uploaded a collection of World War I letters that require transcribing and validation. Further projects will be gradually added. If you are interested please visit the link below:;jsessionid=5E3942914B0FFF1549EC1D72B4C4A8E0

I also encourage you to take a look at other exhibitions (projects) from other institutions requiring volunteers as well.
