Welcome to Northland (1934) and a new phase of Old Weather.

As before, this topic is for asking questions and sharing information.
Now it will also be used to help coordinate transcriptions as we develop the new system.

A spreadsheet is best for me. Mind you, I am back in 1902 with Bear, so it will be a while until I get that far along. (Done 1900, 1901, and 1913 - 1926 resp.
