In progress ;)




This is an example of a Concord day with an insert.
For a transcription of a similar log without inserts see Albatross (1890) -- Discussion: Questions and Comments.

Example of what a weather page might look like when transcribing the last line of data:
Page link





Example of what an events page insert might look like after the data has been transcribed:
Page link



The date is required (it will be linked to the weather page when processed).
You may transcribe more or less other information than is shown here.




Example of what a weather page might look like when the insert page has been turned:
Page link







Example of what an events page, that was hidden by an insert, might look like after the data has been transcribed:

You may transcribe more information than is shown here.

Hi Stuart,
Bertololette is Bertolette  ( 'list of officers')

Passed Asst Engineer E R Gruman USN.,  should have 'Greeman'

K. ~uaney  = Quaney

Thought I'd cracked the W~h paymaster bit - but nope.

Ensigns Joseph Strauss & Levi C. Bertololette, USN.,

I found myself wondering if their families were involved in making blue jeans.  ;)

Thanks Joan.
Changed.

I think (CH) could be 'Coal Heaver'

Could someone check that the bits in the brackets (pds) and (2cf) are the correct letters.
Ta.

(NO, I am NOT going to list the provisions)  ;D

Craig, your picture is refusing to show on the page itself.  I can open it right-click/new-tab, but it won't open for my computer in place.

???

It doesn't show when I open it with IE or Chrome but it does when I use Firefox.  ???

The image at the bottom of the Concord page opens in all browsers and the codes are the same for both images.

Any suggestions?

Testing



This one works OK. Thanks, Janet.


I think the problem may be that the navsource.org/12/ page is very slow to open. Perhaps the IE and Chrome are not as patient as Firefox. Can you recommend a picture of the Concord from another source?

I went to the Naval History and Heritage Command site and searched "Concord"  http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/index.html . These came up.  Right-click/new-tab on image gives the picture only.

http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/n10000/n11225c.htm
http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/h82000/h82133c.htm
http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/events/spanam/ships/gbt-lg.htm went to
     http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/h71000/h71781.jpg
http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/sh-usn/usnsh-c/pg3.htm - all 3 from Spanish-American War
http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/c12/concord-ii.htm picture at the end of the write-up

and no pics, but the original ship-action reports submitted after Manilla Bay
http://www.history.navy.mil/docs/spanam/manila5.htm

These on page 1 of 10, there may be more goodies on the other 9 pages. :)

FYI, I just found a site listing US medals given to the navy and marines.  Among those that list the recipients by name, is the Concord for the Battle of Manila.

For whole list of crew, see http://www.history.navy.mil/medals/dewey.htm
Concord's crew is listed http://www.history.navy.mil/medals/dewey/dewey5.htm
