indexing, proofreading, and transcription services.
I am an editor and a librarian, and in both roles I understand and appreciate the importance of a proper index. I have worked in type-related jobs for many years, as proofreader, typesetter, and copy editor. Not only do I maintain my own website for transcribed historical documents (see below) but as a volunteer I serve as webmaster for several organizations. Let me use these skills to help your publication be the best it can be.
Areas of Expertise
I worked in chess-related publications for nearly twenty years; most recently as Assistant Editor of Chess Life magazine, the publication of the U.S. Chess Federation, where maintaining the research library was one of my responsibilities. I began as an indexer by performing that task annually for the magazine.
Historical Document Transcriptions
I've transcribed several 200-year-old documents in the possession of the City of Newburgh, New York, indexed them, and coded them in HTML. They can be viewed at www.newburgh-ny.org (follow the links to "Historic Documents.") More information on this project is available from the City Engineer's Office in Newburgh, firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, I've indexed such documents transcribed by others. For these, go to http://town.new-windsor.ny.us or contact the New Windsor Town Historian at email@example.com.
Costume and Textile History
I hold a Master Craftsman certificate from the Embroiderer's Guild of America, of which I have been a member for 25 years.
