Nineteenth Century Digital Cooperative

Help unlock the secrets of 19th century documents by transcribing diaries, scrapbooks, family Bibles, government records and more from the Kentucky Historical Society and other organizations.

KHS will post documents from its collections on the Nineteenth Century Digital Cooperative (NCDC). Once a document is transcribed fully, we will review it for accuracy and make it available online through its Digital Collections or the Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition.

Your work will give people access to the information these documents contain and help us create a research tool unlike any other.

Get started here.

(KHS hosts NCDC, a Digital Edition Publishing Cooperative that receives funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.)
