Register for Webinar Wednesday - Easily Read Old Style American Handwriting by Sharon Monson

Register

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.

Join us and Sharon Monson for the live webinar Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 8pm Eastern U.S. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. When you join, if you receive a message that the webinar is full, you know we've reached the 1,000 limit, so we invite you to view the recording which should be published to the webinar archives within an hour or two of the event's conclusion.
