If you are interested in taking the role as Team Leader of this team, please inquire. Thanks!

Our goal is to help people with disabilities undertake family history research by finding and transcribing documents and sources that are not in an accessible format.

As an example, our team members help WikiTreers who are blind or have low vision by:

  • conducting research and finding sources
  • transcribing images of handwritten documents or other hard-to-read sources
  • describing the contents of genealogical charts or other diagrams
  • responding to requests in a text format that is easily accessible

Requests for research and transcription assistance will usually be allocated on a rotation basis. When a new request is received, the Team Leader will ask the next team member on the roster if they are available to help, and if not, the Team Leader will move to the next team member on the roster.
