Transcribing Letters

Trinity University  in Dublin has just started a public humanities project creating a digital archive of crowd sourced letters written around the time of Ireland’s Easter Rising of 1916, called the Letters of 1916. They have complied letters from November 1915 to October 1916 found in institutions such as the National Library and National Archives, and have also issued a call for letters from private collections. They are looking to create a collection ranging over a variety of issues, such as art, politics, WWI, and the Easter Rising.  I’ve registered myself to contribute by transcribing the letters they have on the site so far.
