Welcome to what is a slightly truncated progress update, which we hope will be forgiven owing to the time of year! As might be expected, this week has been slightly slower than usual.

2,383 manuscripts have now been transcribed, an increase of 15 on last week. We will fill you in on the number of locked transcripts when we check submissions after the holiday period.

The state of play for each box is as follows:

  • Box 2: 263 manuscripts transcribed of 532 (49%)
  • Box 27: 238 of 350 (68%)
  • Box 35: 226 of 439 (51%)
  • Box 50: 43 of 92 (45%)
  • Box 51: 44 of 940 (4%)
  • Box 62: 26 of 565 (4%)

  • Box 139: 38 of 38 (100%)
  • Overall: 42% of the 5,580 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Thanks, as ever, to all those who given their time during the past week and, indeed, throughout the year. It is hugely appreciated.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas!
