Volunteers Needed for Transcription Project:

Volunteers Needed for Transcription Project: In 1895 a man named Dolliver traveled around Gloucester, MA and wrote in cursive the words carved on the tombstones. The Gloucester Cemeteries Committee is working on a transcription project that will digitize Dolliver’s work, but we need volunteers to help decipher these handwritten historical documents, which will eventually be accessible on line. If you are curious, like unlocking local history and enjoy a challenge, help us! Visit for more information.
