Abstract In this paper, we present a double annotation system for new handwritten historical documents. We have 25,250 pages of registers of the Italian Comedy of the 18th century containing a great variety and amount of information. A crowdsourcing platform has been set up in order to perform labeling and transcription of the documents. The main purpose is to grasp budget data from the all 18th century and to create a dedicated database for the domain's experts. In order to improve, help and accelerate the process, a parallel system has been designed to automatically process information. We focus on the titles field, segmenting them into lines and checking candidate transcripts. We have collected a base of 971 title lines.
