FREE WEBINAR Easily Read Old Style American Handwriting presented by Sharon Monson, Wednesday, June 13th, 7:00 pm Central - “Genealogical researchers love old records, family bibles, baptismal certificates, and census pages. Transcribing a will or a deed can be a daunting task, especially when the writing instruments are pre-1800. Cursive handwriting from the 1600's up to the 1900's is often a challenge. Knowing a few tips to decipher names, a word that doesn't make sense, or a troublesome abbreviation makes reading  old documents a lot easier.”
