General Meeting: Saturday February 27, 2016
Guest Speaker: Richard Rands
Learn the basic rules of transcribing your ancestors’ handwritten records and discover more about your ancestors’ lives. Richard gives examples of cases where the meaning of a document could be significantly changed by mis-transcription or omission, and suggests ways you can deal with this in your own documents.
Attendance is recommended for anyone hoping to do research before 1850, or learn about ancestors with bad handwriting, or deal with sloppy clerks.
