This project was started in 2016, put on hold for a number of years, then restarted in 2020 and completed 2023. Some diaries were short in length, around 20 pages - others were 100 to 300 pages long and required our transcribers to read through each page finding names dates and events to extract and transcribe. Almost all of these diaries were hand written (in pencil) and while under pressure. A huge Thanks to the few determined transcribers who undertook and completed this daunting task.
