Transcribing old letters, journals, logbooks, deeds ... any and all historical documents!
We accurately transcribe journals, letters, and any other personal, business or institutional records and materials. We are expert at reading early American script.
We have typed and formatted travel diaries, maritime logbooks and journals, 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! Our goal is to help ensure that these important documents be preserved and not lost to the historical record.
Notes and papers 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!
"Jeanne Ashcraft is passionate about her work. She does not 'guess,' paraphrase or summarize transcriptions, but is meticulous and detailed to maintain the historical integrity of your documents. Most importantly, Jeanne cares about you and your project. I highly recommend Jeanne Ashcraft. - John Yancey, Lenexa, Kansas
"I am very satisfied with the work that Jeanne did for me. She was accurate, consistent, and she went beyond my expectations. I have no reason anymore to search for other person to transcribe any documents in my future research. Jeanne, thank you. It was really a pleasure to deal with you." - Loucas Geroulias, Levadia, Greece
