USGenWeb Free Census Project Completion Instructions, Submitting Your Transcription

There are a couple different ways to get your census to our file managers for formatting and uploading for online viewing.

I. One is with the use of this uploader.

Simply find the file on your hard drive via the "browse" button, then hit "upload". The file will automatically be uploaded to a temporary directory where we can deal with it.
