translate old German handwriting script
Do you own any old documents from your German ancestors
that you cannot read? Would you like to know what
they say? Barely anyone can read these writings
of old german handwriting and blackletters any longer,
although many documents are stored in
churches, and even private homes from centuries
ago and are written in the
older German handwriting
, just waiting to be "translated".
Many people own letters, postcards, certificates, court
records, documents concerning inheritance or matters
of genealogy or other papers which contents they
do not know because they cannot read the writing.
But there is help. I can offer you my services through
my transcription office by working on your
documents and translating them. Additionally, I
can research your family or business history
in German churches and archives.
Often these documents of your ancestors will contain
interesting news and valuable information. You
might be surprised by what happened ages ago in
your family and in the surrounding area.
