March program update – Join us for Part 2 of “What the Heck Does That Say?: Overcoming the Challenge of Difficult Handwriting” by Pam Vestal. Pam is back in March to complete our handwriting workshop. Don’t worry if you missed the February meeting. We will use the same handout (available to all registrants) to learn more strategies for deciphering documents. A new exercise sheet will be sent to registrants a few days before the session. Our February meeting had a record attendance – don’t miss Part 2 of Pam’s popular program – register today!
One of the biggest hurdles to overcome in genealogy is the seemingly illegible handwriting in our ancestors’ records. In this month’s interactive session, we’ll look at a variety of practical strategies that can help you overcome all kinds of difficult penmanship, whether the document was written yesterday or hundreds of years ago.
(All FVGS meetings are recorded. Access to the recordings is a member benefit. The February and March recordings will be available to members for 30 days after being posted on the website).
