I am thinking of transcribing some of the diaries of the 10th Div in August 1915, now that they are available at Ancestry.  I thought I'd better check that this isn't being completed already by another member.

I would probably put them online so that they are searchable, in a format similar to this: https://2cmr.wordpress.com/category/1917/04-1917/

(But don't expect something very soon as transcription from hand-written diaries takes a very long time.)

Best wishes

Go for it Norrette, at least it will be done.

I would just suggest that you be careful with regards to any possible copyright issues.

With my dealings with items held by the Australian National Archives or the Australian War Memorial they normally do not mind about items being copied or used so long as the item number and the institution is noted so perhaps the British system is similar though if they are on Ancestry then they may have bought a licence to have them on site.

I have done heaps of such work in the past and it is well worth the effort that you put in.

Cheers,

Thanks both.  I did think about copyright, and there have been chats about it on the Great War Forum.  As long as you don't put the actual scans on a website (can link to their own copy) then in fact the copyright belongs to the transcriber.  Along with a credit to original, I would always make them available to all and sundry in order to keep memories alive... post the centenary.

Well, I've made a start.  Whether I get to January 1916 is a good question, but I'll do my best.
