I am, in some circumstances, willing to scan and prepare a particular month in a particular year requested by a visitor to the site which is of special interest to them, in exchange for their transcribing half the vessels arriving during that month to be available online.
The number of vessels arriving per month from 1900 onward is twice the number in previous years, negotiation may need to take place when the vessel sought is in the second half of a particular month, if that month has not previously been prepared.
The scans may be downloaded via your browser or emailed and the transcribed spreadsheets returned by email to be processed and made available online.
This exchange cannot be undertaken lightly because of the time and commitment involved by both genies, although it gives the opportunity to search for your person as well as contribute to online records for those who do not have physical access to the reels.
People who are not seeking a specific month but would like to join in an transcribe some lists are also welcome. There are no strict deadlines.
