On Thursday, March 19, 2020, starting at 8:00 a.m. EDT we will be LIVE in a completely virtual Transcribe-a-thon for our new crowdsourcing campaign, Herencia: Centuries of Spanish Legal Documents. Participants can transcribe, review, and tag documents from our collection of Spanish Legal Documents, which contains print and manuscript documents from Spain from the 15th through the 19th centuries including royal decrees, papal bulls, legal opinions, judgments, and royal orders.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Visit our Herencia homepage to start transcribing documents here!
Our staff from By the People and the Law Library of Congress will hold two sessions for WebEx Office Hours that volunteers can join and ask questions about the collection and the transcription process. These will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

You can ask questions, and learn more about the collection with hourly updates from our Twitter accounts at @LawLibCongress and @CROWD_LOC.
Join the conversation with fellow volunteers on our History Hub page.
