I have just spent a lot of time trying to find what year a certain volume was in order to make use of this "great" upload of the Transcript - is there any one who has taken the time to post this info? Finding a vol./ page does nothing if we do not know the year (Vol. 97 - p. 269; Sarah Kirby, b. 1750). I used these transcripts for many years when I began to research In 1985 - often found scrapbooks of the articles and they all had an index. used them up until early 2000 when I moved to where I had no libraries for research, like my current situation. I find them so valuable for research, even now. I cannot begin to spend money to Godfrey or any other repository for copies of something I may already know or have., so need to be able to see it for myself.
