Transcription & Typing of Journals, Diaries, Letters & Old Legal Documents
Ashcraft Historical Transcription specializes in the professional transcription or typing of Early American documents, old letters, journals and other personal and institutional records. We can also create indexes and other organizational devices so you can use your materials more easily for genealogical and other personal and historical research.
We transcribe travel diaries, maritime journals and logbooks, immigration records, wills and property deeds, land surveys and field notes, adoption papers, hand-written family trees and memoirs, bundles of family letters, yellowed newspaper articles and obituaries ... even a box of old family recipes! We aim to help ensure that these treasures be preserved and not lost to the historical record.
Documents packed away in drawers, boxes and institutional archives may be the keys to our histories, but only when we can easily read them can we truly enjoy and share them with others who will similarly appreciate the stories that they unlock.
Contact us with your project challenges and let us help you get what you need from your documents. No project is too small!
"I was remarkably impressed with Jeanne Ashcraft's historical transcription service. Not only were the service fees more than reasonable but Jeanne's extraordinary efforts over several weeks to ensure the best and most accurate transcription of a very difficult letter to decipher was fantastic. I highly recommend Ashcraft Historical Transcription and enjoyed the entire process with Jeanne very much." - Dave Wheelan, Chestertown, MD
