never got to read it - issues with Google books that apparently can never be worked out except by not buying from Google books

An essential tool for anyone who wants to research genealogy well. He has a good collection of documents at the back of the book that you can practice transcribing and the actual transcription on the facing page. Good exercises particularly if reading early manuscripts is a new experience and a good refresher for everyone else. ( )

Paleography and studying older documents are some of my favorite aspects of genealogical research. I love studying old handwritten documents as I research family history. Many of the documents I need to study in my region are from the Colonial era and that's why this book was a wise investment. There are close studies of alphabet quirks, abbreviations and terminology from that time period. Half of this book consists of writing samples and transcriptions from various time periods, locations and subjects. This is a go-to reference for those trying to decipher old handwriting from Colonial America. ( )

Reading Early American Handwriting


"Adopt the pace of Nature: her secret is patience."
                —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Paleography, the study of early handwriting, or the rules of reading old handwriting, is an essential element in genealogyical and historical research. The experienced researcher not only needs to be able to read old documents, but also requires the ability to intrepret the value and significance of the content of records. The researcher must be able to analyze documents and their relationship to other records.
