In one-hour sessions, the group will look at a selection of typical formats of document that you may find from the 16th to 19th century, and we will see common ways of writing particular letters, abbreviations and phraseology.

Each session will focus on a particular group of records.

This informal session is ideal for those who would like to find out how to read old documents, especially those that might be useful for local and family history research. This talk is aimed at the beginner and no previous knowledge of reading old handwriting is required.
