The new MarineLives wiki has gone live with over 13,000 pages of mid-C17th content. Do please take a look at the resources on offer by clicking here. On our front page we are showcasing the work of thirty of our volunteers – a full text semi-diplomatic transcription of witness statements in 1656 and 1657 (HCA 13/71) made to the English Admiralty Court.
We are proud of our volunteers’ work, but know we can improve with your help. We are therefore inviting all the readers of our blog to join an Academia.edu feedback session we have opened, so that you can have a direct impact on our future work.
Questions you might like to consider include:
How accurate are our transcriptions?
How can we improve our editorial process?
How can we improve our transcription and editing of Latin phrases
How can we better involve students and public historians in the transcription and annotation of Admiralty Court manuscripts.
