Computer Group – Palaeography Workshop

November 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Reading Old Documents

Many documents used by family historians from census returns to medieval manuscripts can be difficult to read. This talk provides pointers to help you interpret what you are looking at and how to decipher the various handwriting styles in use over the ages. This will be a practical hands on workshop working through examples of documents.

After a request at a previous meeting, I have booked Ian Waller FSG FGRA to lead this workshop. Ian is a retired professional genealogist who has taught family history and written several books on the subject.

 

The Zoom invitation will be included in e-News sent out 3 or 4 days in advance. If you do not receive e-News, please contact the liaison@…   e-mail.
