Welcome to my user page.

I started doing transcription on FreeBMD.org (which I still do) and FreeCen.org. From there I tried my hand at various projects on Zooniverse (weather records, 1961 census data, but mostly - and most enjoyably - the Newdigate papers as part of the 'Shakespeare's World' project). I then fell into doing stuff on Wikisource.

My approach hasn't been very structured, and I tend to have many things on the go at any given time, which I flit between like a demented butterfly. I occasionally get things wrong but there seem to be a lot of people out there waiting to pounce when I do, so these things get straightened out.

I've also done quite a lot in terms of creating new Author pages, or adding to existing ones. I generally use the Internet Archive site to find links for works and most of the books I've added have been chance encounters while doing so.

My transcribing activities have ranged across the centuries, but if anything I have a bit of a bias toward stuff from the Restoration period through to the late 18th century.

I usually try to contribute in some degree to the 'proofread of the month', but I've only listed the ones where this has been more than a few pages created, proofread or validated.
