Register here!

Utah State Archives

https://fromthepage.com
Have you ever wondered how records get indexed and pages get transcribed? The truth is, it is a big job and we could use your help! The Utah Division of Archives and Records Service is thrilled to announce that we have partnered with From The Page, an online program for transcribing documents and collaborating on transcriptions with others. You can transcribe anytime, anywhere! All you need is a computer with internet, the ability to read 19th and 20th century handwriting, and an interest in Utah history.
The first project we need help with is the John D. Lee Case Files, which are records of the trial concerning his involvement in the 1857 Mountain Meadows Massacre. Lee was convicted and executed in 1877. Click here to start transcribing: http://bit.ly/2QcYU5V

Bristol Hospice

During COVID-19 : We need volunteers who’d be willing to write letters or make phone calls to our Hospice patients who have been cooped up and lonely during the Pandemic.
Once COVID-19 Restrictions Lift: Volunteers will have an opportunity to do face to face visits with our patients. Our patients reside in senior facilities or in their own homes. It is a companionship type experience. You could read to the patients, go for a walk, look at photo albums together, simple chit chat, etc. We work around your schedule and it’s only 1 hour a week!
To get you started and trained as a Bristol Volunteer, there is a little paperwork, a few screenings and some online training you can do from home! Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Holly Smith at holly.smith@bristolhospice.com
