Paleography: Handwriting Studies for Genealogy

Handwritten manuscripts are a way of life in archival and genealogical research. Some are easy to read, some not so much. This lecture will introduce you to common types of hands from the late Middle Ages to modern times (1400s-1900s). Attendees will learn how to decipher letters, words, and abbreviations by creating their own “cheat” books for future research. Also, lists of resources will be given on where attendees can learn more, decipher foreign languages (including Latin), and they can gain extra practice will be provided.
