Type out, edit Universalist polity documents?

I only had time to scan a ton of Universalist polity documents when I was at the Harvard-Andover archive last year, and I’ve still not transcribed them. And it would be nice to have in an easy to read and search format some of the rules and procedures of how Universalists operated — hints of which, and sometimes more — are still in use today. Here’s a taste.

I’m no Tom Sawyer, but Universalist polity documents aren’t whitewash, either. Can anyone commit to typing or editing for an hour? Seminarians, especially, who might find a tidbit for unexplored research.

  1. I have access to decent OCR software – how complex is the formatting on these documents?

  2. Some are not-so-complex. I’m going to test it with a tesseract GUI first, but I may take you up on your offer. Thanks.

  3. Count me in if you need a hand. Seminarian in between classes ending and internship beginning, so I’ve got some time on my hands. Sounds like a great project.
