Out of 89 total pages, we have completed 29, another 29 have been assigned, and we have 31 additional pages left to do. I want to thank all of you who have jumped in to help get this transcribed and on the WRG website. Several of you actually edited your portions right on the website. I'd be interested to hear what that experience was like. Did you enjoy it? Was it easy? Confusing? For those of you who volunteered, I have placed a "Whitney Manor Record Volunteer" badge on your user page. Thank you!

I've been trying to figure out how to best answer your questions and coordinate this. Here are some answers to your questions: 1. The PDF can be viewed or downloaded by going to the WRG website <a href="http://wiki.whitneygen.org">http://wiki.whitneygen.org</a> and selecting the "Whitney Manor Transcribers" link at the top of the box on the right side of the page. 2. This PDF probably cannot be easily converted or scanned as some of you suggested. We've tried that and it hasn't worked well, but if anyone wants to try, I would love to hear that you've had better success. 3. For those who would like to help, just go to the page, download the PDF, and then let me know how many pages you'd like to volunteer for. I'll assign a set of pages for you and you can then email them back to me. Thank you all!
