transcriptions

 

On August 11, the Commission launched a challenge to transcribe original suffrage documents in partnership with the Library of Congress.

When a document is transcribed online, it becomes searchable and available to anyone in the world. During National Women’s Suffrage Month, the Commission invited Americans across the country to sign up and to transcribe as many documents as possible from the Library’s “Organizing for Women’s Suffrage: The NAWSA Records” collection by the end of the month. Documents from the National American Woman Suffrage Association ranged from biographical information on suffragists, litigation proceedings, and correspondence. By the end of August 2020, nearly 14,000 new documents had been transcribed in the collection.
