Transcription, agreements and rules

Welcome to the volunteer team of the PARDONS project! Thank you for your participation and contribution to the opening of an important set of Old Regime sources. Transcribing a document from the past is not an easy task. The attached manual, written by Dr. Gert Gielis, will allow you to navigate most comfortably through these sources. It will introduce you to the different modalities and conventions of transcription, in order to maintain a certain uniformity, and will provide you with a historical overview of the letter of grace as a source and archival context.

Likewise, due to the particularity of the project, certain ad hoc agreements are also established in order to simplify this transcription operation as much as possible.
