Handwriting Analysis and Genealogy Research with Bryan Mulcahy

May 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Handwriting Analysis and Genealogy Research with Bryan Mulcahy.  Old-fashioned handwriting, inconsistent spelling, fading ink and unfamiliar words can conspire to make genealogy records frustratingly difficult to decipher.  Reading old handwriting is an essential skill for genealogists but sometimes it can be challenging. Genealogists study and practice reading old handwriting in order to read and interpret the documents essential to family history research such as probate files, wills, land records, deeds, and court files. Many documents require the genealogist to read old handwriting to transcribe, abstract, or extract the pertinent data and use it in their family history.  This seminar will provide an overview of strategies to overcome these issues.  The study guide which will be provided will include links to online and You Tube tutorials presented by experts in this topic.

This is a workshop and will be virtual only.
