Thank you, Janet! I like you already--you seem nice, and your username has my favorite animal! (Although I'm guessing that for you it's a three-syllable pronunciation?
Wow, a person could get lost for days reading these transcribed logs, especially if they're interested in maritime history. What an impressive collection! Where should I begin? Also, should I pay attention to that other forum as well?
How about if I wanted to try my hand at contributing, so that I understand the project a little better? The only barrier is that I'm sadly miserable at interpreting cursive, let alone the scrawl that a lot of sailors use.
In any case, thank you for the welcome!
EDIT: Oh, hello to you too, Randi. Thank you very much! I'll have a look!
