GSU are prepared to loan microfilm to transcribers for use at home if
certain conditions are fulfilled (see "Terms of Loan"). Microfilm is
ideal for transcribing, can be read on a microfiche reader but has
more resolution than microfiche.

Contributing to the FreeREG Project: "There are many different ways in which you can contribute to the FreeREG project. You could participate in a technical capacity working to make the project happen, in a co-ordination capacity helping others carry out their work or most importantly as a data provider in the transcription of parish records into a form whereby they can be entered into the database.
The first two activities require some technical expertise and a willingness to participate over the longer term.
Transcription can involve as much time as you are willing to commit and primarily requires a good eye for reading handwriting and some basic skills with a computer keyboard. It is a function that can be performed anywhere in the world and one that is the base upon which the ultimate success of FreeREG will depend."
